BECG is delighted to announce that we have become the latest partner of the government’s Northern Powerhouse Partner Programme.
The Northern Powerhouse is government’s vision for a super-connected, globally-competitive northern economy with a flourishing private sector, a highly-skilled population, and world-renowned civic and business leadership. The Northern Powerhouse Partner Programme is an important part of creating the Northern Powerhouse.
Government is building a network of partners who all believe strongly in the economic potential of the North and support the need for a combined effort by government and business to realise that potential. Over 300 businesses and organisations have signed up to the partner programme.
Minister for the Northern Powerhouse, the Rt Hon Jake Berry, MP said:
“It’s great to welcome BECG as the newest member of the Northern Powerhouse Partner Programme. Our partners represent a network of over 300 businesses who share our vision for the Northern Powerhouse and continue to work together to help the North reach its full economic potential as we prepare to leave the EU on 31 October. I’m excited to see the contribution BECG will make to the Northern Powerhouse as they support businesses to attract investment into the region and build upon our £120 million Local Growth Fund investment across the Leeds and Greater Manchester regions.”
Kevin Whitmore, Director for BECG North said:
“I am delighted to be able to announce BECG’s partnership with the Northern Powerhouse Programme. Our team has worked in every local planning authority across the North, helping to deliver investment into the region’s built environment and create social value for local communities – the foundation of a more prosperous northern economy. We look forward to collaborating with other partners throughout 2019 and beyond to showcase the North as a great place to do business.”
