The North East Local Enterprise Partnership (NELEP) is to unveil its first annual ‘Our Economy’ report at Sage Gateshead on Tuesday March 6, 2018.
Presenting an overview of the North East economy and how it is changing over time, the new report will become an important resource for the government, policymakers and businesses operating in the region.
Andrew Hodgson, NELEP’s chair, said: “It’s important we track our progress and monitor our economic performance so we position the North East to take advantage of future developments, including those arising from the government’s recently published Industrial Strategy.
“Our annual review of the North East economy will ensure we remain on track to deliver the refreshed Strategic Economic Plan and reach our aim of creating 100,000 more and better jobs by 2024.”
As well as providing a comprehensive look at the regional economy, ‘Our Economy’ will also look, in-depth, at a topical issue affecting the North East.
In 2018, that topic is to be: ‘The North East in the global economy’.
Victoria Sutherland, senior economist at the NELEP, added: “We’re bringing an expert panel of speakers together from business, education and government to discuss the importance of international relations and what the North East needs to do to build stronger international links.
“Our keynote speaker will be a North East business already trading internationally, and they will share how other regional businesses can follow in their footsteps.”
Our Economy 2018, with insights into global connections, takes place at Sage Gateshead on Tuesday March 6 from 8.30am – 11:00am.
