Our objective is to increase the impact and contribution of the North of England to the UK economy.
The North contains communities with a strong industrial heritage and a distinct culture all surrounded by a beautiful natural environment. By encouraging these communities to work more closely together, we believe we can make the whole of the North greater than the individual parts. This will create the prosperous, modern economic powerhouse that has the critical mass to drive a wealth of opportunities.
The NPP will help develop consensus among businesses, civic leaders and others about how the north of England can be more successful. The focus will be on encouraging cities and counties to work together to create a northern powerhouse.
By producing original research, encouraging innovative thinking and hosting thought-provoking events, the NPP will encourage new policy ideas which will improve the north’s quality of life and economy, and promote it as a place to work, study, live and invest.
