The Midlands Engine Economic Observatory
The partnership will focus on delivering economic analysis and build on our knowledge of opportunities, both now and into the future, developing a comprehensive view of what the Midlands could look like in 2030 and what we need to do to get there.
The Midlands Engine Executive and Operating Boards have tasked the observatory to deliver two flagship pieces of analysis to ensure we can effectively raise productivity in the Midlands:
- An Independent Economic Review
- A region-based sector assessment of the potential impact of Brexit
The Midlands Engine Economic Observatory will also support the work of our strategic programme groups including trade and investment, skills, innovation and enterprise and shaping places, providing a strong evidence base for submissions to government.
