Retailers push for place in May's industrial strategy

Bosses from Asos, John Lewis and Amazon are due to sit down with the business secretary next week in a bid to persuade the government to include retail in its new industrial strategy.  

Chief executives from the retailers, as well as the British Retail Consortium and Tesco, are due to meet Greg Clark in order to push for the special support the government has said it will give certain sectors, according to the Times.

Prime Minister Theresa May has already announced plans to invest in transport, broadband and energy in a bid to “back Britain for the long term.”

May has also pledged to develop new technologies across the country, making it easier for companies to do business in the UK and cut red tape.
