Housing and Growth Deal – Productivity

Oxfordshire’s knowledge-intensive economy delivers £23 billion a year to the nation’s economic output – it is one of just three net county contributors to the UK economy. The Deal commits Government support to expand our world-class businesses, research bodies and employment sites across the county. An Oxfordshire Industrial Strategy is being developed to direct investment, deliver inclusive growth, drive productivity and innovation, and address specific skills gaps. The Deal will build a pathway for young people to develop the skills needed to capture opportunities in the emerging growth sectors of Oxfordshire, supporting those at risk of social exclusion.
