With 32 regional and national firms already committing support to the Northern powerhouse initiative and many others on the way.
The Governments Northern Powerhouse partners programme is starting to gain some considerable momentum.
With a solid mix of organisations across the full spectrum on the public and private sectors. This may be the first time a truly focused body, sharing the same agenda had been developed to fully realise and maximise the true potential of the region.
Dozens of firms have stepped up to back the Northern Powerhouse in major boost to the government’s ambitions. Leading businesses – from Peel Ports to Leeds Bradford Airport – can today (31 October 2016) be unveiled as Northern Powerhouse partners. A raft of firms have signed up to the new government scheme, with many others in the pipeline, meaning the number of Northern Powerhouse partners has surpassed the 30 mark. Each of these companies has committed to join forces with government to help the North achieve its full potential – and attract new jobs and investment to the region. Prime Minister Theresa May has made it a key government mission to back business growth across the Northern Powerhouse, through record investments in transport, backing for science and infrastructure schemes and cultural and sports funding
