NECC Manifesto 2011 launched

 

NECC has today published its Manifesto 2011, Driving Sustainable Growth. The document sets out the key issues on which NECC will campaign on behalf of members over the next 12 months. It has been developed following extensive consultation with members and was finalised by NECC Council in December.

In the midst of major changes to national policy as a result of the coalition government’s agenda to tackle the deficit, and in the North East as reforms to regional structures take place, the Manifesto sets out the measures NECC members believe are needed for:

  • Safeguarding assets which are critical to maintaining the recovery;
  • Reforming areas of policy to bolster competitiveness of North East businesses and UK plc; and
  • Investing in priority areas to unlock economic growth.

The full Manifesto can be seen here.
