EU Transition

We continue to coordinate and support the North East EU Exit Implementation Group, bringing together regional cross-sector partners to monitor the impact of the Trade & Co-operation Agreement on the North East economy, explore new opportunities emerging from post-EU Exit domestic policy, develop policy responses reflecting the priorities of the region, and share knowledge to inform the Growth Hub’s support offer for businesses.

Working with partners on the Implementation Group we have agreed a regional statement of key messages and published a range of responses to Government policy processes, including evidence about the impact of EU Exit on our sectors and labour market. this is available to read here.

North East trade and export report

The North East LEP has taken the opportunity of working with the Department for International Trade and the North East England Chamber of Commerce to develop a regional trade and export report as part of a wider Northern Powerhouse programme across the 11 Northern LEP areas. The North East LEP will work with partners on the implementation of the report and its recommendations, and the development of a supporting evidence base as the Government brings forward a trade and export strategy in the Autumn of 2021.
