Economic Development

The Greater Manchester Growth Plan has been produced by the Greater Manchester Economic Advisory Panel. The Panel were asked to reflect on the radically-changed economic circumstances since the Manchester Independent Economic Review (MIER) and then the Greater Manchester Strategy (GMS) were written, to help advise on the best routes to recovery and sustainable economic growth for Greater Manchester.

Its primary purpose is to help drive the polity – local, central government, business – towards the decisions the evidence suggests need to be taken to help drive economic growth. The Growth Plan includes 10 hard hitting recommendations for steps by public and private sector partners in Manchester and national Government to accelerate economic growth.

The Local Economic Assessment (LEA) was produced by New Economy in partnership with the ten local authorities of Greater Manchester – Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, and Wigan. It provides a detailed analysis of the Greater Manchester economy and is organised around the themes of business, people and place. The document also includes individual chapters for each of the local authorities in the conurbation.

This new strategy for Greater Manchester fuses together our strong plans for reforming public services with a continued drive for growth and prosperity. Our objective is to sustain progress whilst eliminating the gap between the taxes we raise and the resources we expend on public services. We want to deliver services differently, more efficiently and reduce the level of demand for those services, by bringing more people into higher quality work.
