The Midlands has set out its stall to win £14bn from global investors as part of its plan to turn itself into one of the world's leading regional economies. The Midlands Engine Pitchbook will showcase investment opportunities to key markets such as China and the US. It unveils 33 major schemes for investors, which can create a total of 178,000 jobs, 32,000 new homes and 57.9 million sq ft of property space for the region. Business secretary Sajid Javid said: 'Foreign investment in the Midlands has more than doubled since 2011 and by embracing opportunities such as the MIPIM trade fair, we will capitalise on the Midlands' natural strengths and make it an engine for growth.'
