The North East continues to reinvent itself.
Although much of the industry based on exploiting the resources and geography of the Region have gone, manufacturers still value its skilled workforces. This is evidenced by the decision of Nissan, and many other foreign companies, to locate factories in the North East.
We are also building on our creative reputation and forging our way in the new world with clusters of creative digital industries.
