Responding to the outcome of the EU referendum, Andy Street Chair of Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership said:
Although this is clearly a period of intense political uncertainty for the country it is essential that we continue to drive forward the economy of the Greater Birmingham and Solihull region.
We currently have real momentum. This is based on very firm plans on the part of our businesses and public sector. We will be seeking every opportunity to press firmly on with these plans, as now more than ever we must demonstrate the inherent strength of our area.”
