What is Great South West?

A wide range of leaders from organisations across the South West of England (including from the public, business and education sectors) have been discussing how they can work together under a common banner to enable a common strategy for increased productivity and prosperity for all. Great South West is the working title for this.

With over £100bn of business opportunities, the South West has much to contribute to UK plc; a dynamic and progressive South West economy can generate the critical success factors needed for a successful national economy.

Our strategy for greater prosperity is to collaborate to promote 

We are focused towards having a clear and consistent strategy in time for the Autumn Statement.
