Objectives

  • Setting out the strategic priorities for the regional inward investment and international trade activities.
  • These include identifying the priority sectors where activity should be focused (based on the CWLEP’s sectorial strategy), suggesting pro-active activities (international marketing events, inward visits, linkages to UKTI initiatives etc) that the Economic Prosperity Board could undertake across the priority sectors, and suggesting medium and long term targets for growth in international business across the priority sectors.
  • Supporting the Economic Prosperity Board with high-level events and activities where a sector knowledgeable CWLEP representative would be helpful.
  • Reporting back to the CWLEP Board against the CWLEP’s strategic goals.
