Invest North brought together the policymakers, movers and shakers of the region to analyse the question “what next?” in the growing excitement for building the North.
Various events in recent years have sent shockwaves through the economy on a global scale, in turn forcing people, places and leadership to hit the reset button and work to rethink, rebuild and renew.
To effectively analyse “what next?” for the region, we have produced the inaugural Invest North 2022 report in partnership with TheBusinessDesk.com and the Northern Powerhouse Partnership, which we are all delighted to share with you today.
The report is broken down into five key themes: international, place, funding and investment, the war on talent and innovation. Each theme assesses the importance of devolution, meaningful levelling up, developing skills, connectivity, foreign direct investment and the drive for net-zero in bolstering the regional economy, demonstrating how all of these factors are interlinked and reliant on one another to create an investable ecosystem.
Featuring commentary and analysis from the leaders and influencers of the region, our report provides exclusive insight into the priorities for the Northern Powerhouse.
