The 10 North East businesses which are featured underline the North East’s strength in education and advanced manufacturing and include:
University of Sunderland
Port of Tyne
South Tyneside College
North East Local Enterprise Partnership Chair Paul Woolston said:
“We are delighted to be launching this fantastic opportunity to showcase North East England to an international audience.
“The North East has a great story to tell – not only do we have the fastest growing economy in England, but we are also the only net exporting region in England. Through the campaign we have captured the breadth of our expertise and our investment in skills and innovation as we continue to drive forward growth to meet our ambition of creating more and better jobs.”
Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye said:
“As the UK’s only hub airport, Heathrow is our front door for global investors. I hope that by encouraging them to visit and invest in the North East, we can help to grow businesses and create jobs in the region.”
