The York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP)
Vital for the LEP to build its understanding of the area’s economic strengths and opportunities, the strategy will be used to strengthen the LEP’s proposals to the central government for future investment opportunities, like the Industrial Strategy.
To encourage people to collaborate, the LEP is hosting an online conversation using #YNYERFutures and asking people to respond to its economic data and think pieces by leading partners to help inspire the debate.
There will also be a survey for people to express their views on important questions to help inform the LEPs response.
LEP Chair Barry Dodd CBE said: “In response to the complex business environment in which our businesses are operating, we need to update our shared understanding of the area’s economic strengths, so that we can continue to build watertight cases to the central government, for future investment opportunities.
“We want to help our partners get ahead of the game to secure the best possible future for our residents and businesses.
“Given the changes anticipated under the Industrial Strategy, we are encouraging everyone to get involved and take part in the debate.”
The conversation, which will take place over the next six weeks, is structured around a series of questions to enhance the LEPs understanding of several broad challenges including productivity, resilience and demography.
Once the LEP has a detailed understanding of the challenges, they will be narrowed down to more specific problems and opportunities.
The York, North Yorkshire & East Riding Enterprise Partnership was set up by central government as a business-led partnership with the public sector.
The purpose of a local enterprise partnership is to use local knowledge to secure investment in projects that will make a difference to regional economies by supporting business.
