Major businesses give Northern Powerhouse the thumbs up
A raft of firms have signed up to the new government scheme, with many others in the pipeline, meaning the number of Northern Powerhouse partners has surpassed the 30 mark. Each of these companies has committed to join forces with government to help the North achieve its full potential – and attract new jobs and investment to the region.
The businesses taking part in the Northern Powerhouse partnership programme – which range from infrastructure specialists and PR agencies to banks and universities – will join a new network of leaders who strongly believe in the potential to grow the Northern economy and are committed to delivering this growth. By pledging their support, this dynamic new network will now champion the North’s strengths, as well as promote new and exciting local developments across transport, skills and innovation, culture, and devolution.
