Provider: North East Local Enterprise Partnership
In March 2017, the North East Local Enterprise Partnership published its refreshed Strategic Economic Plan (SEP) for the North East. The plan details how we will deliver 100,000 more and better jobs into the North East economy by 2024. It is one of a number of documents that has been produced since 2012 to set the strategic direction for North East economy growth. The journey started in 2012, when we commissioned Lord Andrew Adonis, together with a team of major influential figures, to recommend future pathways for the North East economy, focussing on growth and productivity. The result was the North East Independent Economic Review, which provided us with a detailed, independent evidence base of information. This informed all aspects of our Strategic Economic Plan, which was published in 2014.
