With major investments in infrastructure, commercial opportunities and innovative technologies continuing to emerge at scale and at pace, the North has the opportunity to be the solution to the UK’s future prosperity.

Our invitation to you, and people across the North is to make your voice heard and play a part in the creation of a prosperous and successful Northern Powerhouse.

Export performance from the Northern Powerhouse is also strong. International demand for high quality, innovative products and services from northern businesses is growing and, in the year to March 2019, the region exported £59.6bn worth of goods overseas.

The Northern Powerhouse aims to deliver Transformational Growth that will generate an additional 850,000 jobs and £97bn of Gross Value Added (GVA) to the North’s economy by 2050.
