However, as part of the Department’s FDI Strategy, launched in April this year, DIT works with local partners through the High Potential Opportunities programme to identify emerging clusters, sub-sectors, supply chain gaps or other strategic opportunities that have the greatest potential to deliver economic benefits – across the whole of the UK. This includes local communities and small towns. The Department’s FDI strategy focuses on delivering new ways to target support for those FDI projects that create the most value for investors and the national wealth.</p><p> </p> more like this
