Dave Axam, Chair of Enterprise M3, met the Prime Minister at Number 10 this week as part of a LEP Network meeting, made up of business leaders representing 38 LEP’S across the UK.
Talks focussed on where LEPs carry maximum impact: delivering the objectives of the Modern Industrial Strategy in local areas, and investing in the skills people and businesses need.
EM3 was one of only two LEP’s mentioned in the Prime Minister’s opening remarks about delivery around our 5GIC Innovation Centre work.
This is the first of the meetings planned for the PM to meet with the Council of LEP Chairs to further develop closer links with Government.
