The strategy sets out our vision that by 2020 the Manchester city region will have pioneered a new model for sustainable economic growth based around a more connected, talented and greener city region, where all our residents are able to contribute to and benefit from sustained prosperity and a good quality of life.
It also informed the development of our Local Industrial Strategy which outlines a set of long-term policy priorities to help guide industrial development and provide a joint plan for good jobs and growth in Greater Manchester.
The Strategy, published in June 2019, was co-designed with business, the community, the voluntary and social enterprise sector and citizens. A comprehensive consultation exercise was undertaken, including a 6-week formal consultation.
The strategy sets out plans to capitalise on the city-region’s unique assets and opportunities by:
Setting Greater Manchester up to be a global leader on health and care innovation – creating new industries and jobs, improving population health and extending healthy life expectancy
Building on Greater Manchester’s position as a leading European digital city-region; enabling the digitalisation of all sectors; and capitalising on the links between digital and creative industries that feed internationally significant clusters in broadcasting, content creation and media, and maximising growing assets in cyber security
