The Regional Economic Strategy provides a long-term plan for the economic development of the North East to 2035.
The Regional Economic Strategy is focused on four themes matching the priorities in the Scotland’s economic strategy: Innovation, Internationalisation, Infrastructure and Inclusivity.
The Strategy outlines key sectors for the region, including: Oil and Gas; Food, Drink and primary industries; Tourism and Life Sciences.
An exciting vision, the Regional Strategy was used as part of City Region Deal negotiations and set the context for Opportunity North East’s (ONE’s) economic leadership board.
An updated action plan was created in 2018 to ensure we capitalise on the major investment we’re currently seeing in the region, and take account of a changing policy environment. The plan highlights where partners are working together to move the North East economy forward, and ensure our ambitions to achieve economic renaissance are realised.
