The research calls on the government to help boost growth by increasing investment and support for emerging consumer markets and our most competitive export industries.

But, it argues, for Britain to achieve its full potential in these areas, the government must change its approach to the economy, and deal with the fundamental issues that are holding back growth in these areas.
