We’ve held seven successful consultation events over recent weeks, giving businesses the opportunity to feed into the delivery plans for the new Economic Strategy.
The events in King’s Lynn, Norwich, Bury St Edmunds, Ipswich, Eye and Great Yarmouth have been attended by over 250 businesses. These follow a series of events during the development of the strategy last year which saw a further 1,000 businesses, public sector partners and organisations take part.
For each event, businesses shared the ways in which they are already working to support the three key themes in the Economic Strategy for Norfolk and Suffolk: ‘Our Offer to The World’, ‘Driving Inclusion and Skills’ and ‘Driving Business Growth and Productivity’.
The feedback from these consultation events is all being fed into the delivery plan for the strategy. This work includes looking for examples of outstanding activity and seeing how those could be rolled out across a wider area, checking for areas of duplication and looking for gaps where more intervention is needed.
