The UK Heads of Mission will provide insights based on their experiences and current developments in the countries they represent. The UK will need to look beyond Europe for trade opportunities and increase existing levels. As MENA countries look to diversify their economies from oil and gas, many opportunities present themselves to UK companies in the region.

Strategy International Regional Engagement Programme 2018: Newcastle City Council

Strategy International Regional Engagement Programme 2018: Newcastle City Council

Over the course of the last two years, The D Group has embarked on a sustained programme of engagement with the devolved cities and regions of the UK. In this time, we have had visits from leaders from Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, Sheffield, Newcastle, Leeds and the Tees Valley. 

The result of these engagements has been a desire from both sides to continue the productive conversations begun at 23 Grafton Street. To that end, 2018 will see D Group and sister company BEI take to the road for a series of engagements in situ.

The continuing devolution of power and funding to local government make this an opportune moment for such an initiative. With needs in every sector, notably infrastructure, transport, healthcare and all the accompanying professional services the case for proactive membership engagement is as strong as it has ever been.

Newcastle
Newcastle is an outward-looking, forward-thinking city that is investing for the future - a place where businesses grow, thrive and stay. It is international and European, cosmopolitan and progressive – Newcastle is a city which is constantly evolving and improving.

The council is driving growth through an extensive programme of capital infrastructure, attracting new businesses and investment into the city, ensuring Newcastle is prepared for environmental change, and working with partners to create the conditions for more and better jobs. With an investment fund of £370m for the next three years, and a whole host of transport, infrastructure and development projects to be completed, Newcastle is a prime case for inward investment.

The D Group’s visit falls during the Great Exhibition of the North, which presents a great opportunity for the delegation to see how Newcastle and the north are driving this country into the future. 

PROGRAMME
12.30 - 14:30: Lunch, The Mansion House, Jesmond, with Nick Forbes, Leader of the Newcastle City Council
14.30 - 17:00: Guided Tour of the Great Exhibition of the North with the Newcastle Gateshead Initiative
17.30 - 19:00: Drinks Reception, The Mansion House, Jesmond

Sheffield City Region
With an economy of over £30bn, 1.9m residents and 68,000 businesses and a strong public-private economic partnership in place the Sheffield City Region is in the vanguard of the transformational economic change underway in the North of England. The Sheffield City Region is on target to deliver Europe’s largest cluster of advanced manufacturing research and production – playing host to major international manufacturers as well as thousands of high value supply chain businesses. Last year alone both McLaren Automotive and Boeing have announced major new production facilities – bringing even more advanced, research-led production to the City Region. And with that comes opportunity for investors, developers, agents and businesses looking to locate their operations in the beating heart of the United Kingdom.

PROGRAMME
09.30-10.00: Arrive
10.00-12.00: Site visit to the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre
12.30: Lunch with Nigel Brewster, Vice Chairman of the Sheffield LEP

Tees Valley
The Tees Valley Combined Authority
was created in April 2016 with the purpose of driving economic growth and job creation in the area. It is a partnership of five authorities; Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar & Cleveland and Stockton-on-Tees, working closely with the business community and other partners to make local decisions to support the growth of the local economy.

The local devolution deal, agreed with the Government in October 2015, came with a 30 year agreement worth over £450 million, plus a further £500m to invest in projects over the next five years. There is also no shortage of projects to go with this portfolio: railways, bypasses, airports and ports all sit high on the local agenda, whilst the region is also a major player in the advanced manufacturing and process industries. 

PROGRAMME
12.30: Lunch with local leadership
14.30: Site visit
17.30: Evening reception with
