The North East economy is changing. Employment is at a record high. Economic output is at a record high. Labour productivity is at a record high.

At the North East Local Enterprise Partnership we are working together with partners to maximise these opportunities and bring long term, sustainable growth to the North East.

By taking a strategic lead to deliver economic growth we are bringing in public and private investment to the North East, including a £290m North East Growth Deal and £460m from European Structural and Investment Funds.

Working with local businesses and organisations we are shaping how these investments will be used. In particular our North East Strategic Economic Plan sets out how we can create more and better jobs so that by 2024 the North East economy will provide over one million jobs.

Find out more about how we are driving forward this agenda for growth.
