We are a business led partnership, bringing together private, public and not-for-profit sector organisations to determine local economic priorities and undertake activities which drive economic growth and productivity through innovation,  job creation, improved infrastructure and increased workforce skills within our area.

We invest in transport, innovation, skills and enterprise, and  our Strategic Economic Plan and emerging Local Industrial Strategy set out our vision for the future economy and plans to boost the productivity, prosperity and quality of life for the people and businesses who live and work in our region.

Our growth ambition is to achieve an average growth rate of 4% per year to 2030.
