Business North provides a pan-northern business voice, to drive forward economic growth and raise productivity and prosperity across the region.

Accelerated economic growth for the north is our overall objective. We focus on those policy issues that benefit from agglomeration effects and therefore are better delivered at a pan-northern level.

The North of England is home to a huge variety of world-class industries, businesses, people and assets. Making the most of our strengths, and harnessing new opportunities, is best achieved through collaboration and clear planning. Business North aims to facilitate this by providing a united business voice to guide public and private decision makers on the most effective investments and interventions.
