North East economic response group proposes recovery plan to tackle unemployment and ‘the new normal’

A North East response group has secured support from across the region for its economic recovery plan as the country emerges from lockdown.

The North East COVID-19 Economic Response Group has proposed a staged economic recovery plan to introduce measures that build confidence, stabilise the economy and help our businesses, sectors and places adapt to the ‘new normal’.

The group, which is made up of the North East Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), North East and North of Tyne Combined Authorities, the CBI on behalf of business, North East Joint Transport Committee and regional universities, has joined forces to plot the economic recovery of the region.
