The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS)
The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) is building a dynamic and competitive UK economy by: creating the conditions for business success; promoting innovation, enterprise and science; and giving everyone the skills and opportunities to succeed. To achieve this it will foster world-class universities and promote an open global economy. BIS - Investing in our future.
Growth is the Government’s top priority and every part of Government is focused on it. But we need to grow differently.
Growth must be sustainable, shared and balanced – across the country and between sectors of the economy.
There is a clear and active role for Government to create the conditions for the private sector to grow and remove unnecessary barriers that can stifle growth.
And there is a strong role for BIS, as the Department for Growth, in enabling this.
Almost everything that BIS does – from investing in skills to making markets more dynamic and reducing regulation, and from promoting trade to boosting innovation and helping people start and grow a business – helps drive growth.
