The success of long term economic growth for the North East will be driven and delivered by businesses and organisations working together to achieve a common goal.
Building up strong relationships and networks across sectors and industries is essential to achieving this. Together we can work to make sure the North East is known globally as a hub for open innovation, with the right skills and opportunities for our young people, to build successful businesses backed by world-class support and infrastructure. Developing excellent and responsive communications is an important part of this journey.
We are delighted to launch the new North East LEP website. The new site provides the opportunity for everyone to find out more about how we are working to deliver more and better jobs for the North East. By creating a clear, accessible and comprehensive website, we are able to show the breadth of work that the North East LEP is working on to tackle the skills gap, bring investment and better support for businesses to the area and drive forward a new era in innovation.
This is just phase one though – over the coming months we will continue to develop the site. It will also include a new apprenticeship site to support businesses and individuals create and secure more apprenticeships and a new growth hub for the North East, which will provide a comprehensive directory of local business support.
Through better communications we can continue to strengthen our partnerships and deliver the Economic Plan – together we can achieve a stronger future for the North East.
