Strategies and priorities

Productivity Strategy

The LEP Board and HotSW Joint Committee have agreed an ambitious Productivity Strategy for our area, aiming to grow productivity and double the economy by 2038. Productivity is the over-riding economic challenge for the UK as a whole and the Heart of the SW; raising productivity is critical to improving living standards and creating wealth in the future and the Strategy sets out where we will focus our efforts to achieve this. The Strategy is accompanied by the Heart of the South West LEP Annual Delivery Plan and the Strategy itself is an evolution of our previous Strategic Economic Plan.
