Developing the Sheffield City Region Economic Strategy

24th June 2019

The Sheffield City Region team is redeveloping the area's economic strategy, which will be a route-map for the South Yorkshire economy.

The strategy will also form the basis for Government investment over the short, medium and long term. This is an opportunity for Sheffield Chambers Members to find out about work underway to redevelop the strategy and ensure that the strategy advocates business interests and needs. Members are invited to join a discussion with officers from the Sheffield City Region team to cover the key issues emerging as they build their evidence base. The session will have two main elements; the first part will provide a summary of the key data findings and key messages. The second part will be more interactive and will explore business priorities and ideas. Please note this is a Members only event.
