Seven north east authorities are coming together to showcase all that the region has to offer at the UK’s premier international business event later this month.

Members of the North East Combined Authority (NECA) – made up of Northumberland, North Tyneside, Durham, Gateshead, Newcastle, South Tyneside and Sunderland councils – are uniting with the North East LEP to provide a single gateway for investors looking to work with the region, and will be presenting the north east’s offer at the International Festival for Business (IFB) in Liverpool.

NECA chair, Coun Simon Henig, said: “We believe strongly that the sum of what we offer is greater than the parts, and attending this event together is a real statement of intent for us.

“It is about showing the world what we have to offer in the North East, with one shared voice and a set of common strengths.”
