Engineering an economy that works for all forms the engineering profession's collective response to the government's green paper on industrial strategy. The report represents a collaboration of all 38 professional engineering organisations, led by the Royal Academy of Engineering, and has benefited from an unprecedented level of engagement by the engineering community.

The report team collected information both through an online survey with almost 1,300 respondents and a series of 10 workshops, gathering evidence in the devolved nations and English regions as well as focusing on skills, innovation and specific sectors of industry.

The report calls for the strategy to embody an ambitious and bold long-term vision that harnesses the UK’s international reputation for engineering excellence and forges a new global identity for Britain as a top destination for inward investment and global talent.
