 Why England's Economic Heartland?

We are the beating heart of the UK’s global competitiveness particularly in science, and technology innovation.

Covering over 12,000 sq km between London, the Midlands and beyond, the Heartland area is home to 3.45 million people and 175,000 businesses, providing over 1.6 million jobs.

As a £92.5bn economy and a significant net contributor to the Exchequer, we're in good shape. But our mission is to deliver much more – up to 20% more – that’s good for the area and great for UK PLC as a whole.

 Our Chairman Martin Tett
