Great South West to share update on green and blue ambitions at Devon event

3 GSW to share update at Devon event

The Great South West is one of the country’s Pan-Regional Partnerships, alongside the Northern Powerhouse, Midlands Engine and Western Gateway, covering Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly, Devon, Dorset and Somerset. It is led by business, and focused on delivering a larger and more productive economy, unlocking the potential of the region’s green and blue economies, and driving investment.

Since gaining formal recognition from Government at a Parliamentary Reception in January, the Great South West is holding a series of regional events to share insights into its ambitions and progress. Following its first event in Taunton in March, the Partnership is holding an Exeter event on 16 June.

Karl Tucker, Chair of the Great South West, said: “We are looking forward to meeting with business leaders, education providers and authorities from across Devon, as we continue to develop our plans to build our economy, champion our region, and tap into our potential as a world-leader in the green and blue economies.”

Local businesses, universities, colleges, and authorities are invited to attend the free event to discuss the next steps for the region’s journey.
