Economic plan aims to create 36,000 new jobs in Leeds City Region

The new economic plan for the Leeds City Region has been unveiled, showing 10 'big impact' initiatives that will transform the economy and create thousands of extra jobs over the next 20 years.

The Strategic Economic Plan sets out how the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership and West Yorkshire Combined Authority will create an additional 35,700 jobs for local people over the next two decades, and grow the City Region economy at a faster rate than the national average. 

Building on recent successes in increasing the City Region's share of inward investment, and recent growth in the region's data security and digital sectors, the plan also sets out an ambition to make the City Region a leading centre for tech jobs and talent.
