 England's Economic Heartland in numbers

 Why England's Economic Heartland?

The Heartland region could become a global economic heavyweight, a new Silicon Valley renowned for science, technology and innovation, and competing on the world-stage for UK Plc.

  • The National Infrastructure Commission believes the area could support a further 700,000 jobs by 2050, increasing GVA by £163bn
  • This growth requires the right infrastructure - our potential is currently hamstrung by poor connectivity
  • England's Economic Heartland Strategic Alliance is providing a single, joined up voice to Government on our infrastructure needs, from roads and rail to broadband and utilities.
