Foreword Achievements Economic Performance Delivery Map Review

2016/17 has been another exciting year for the GBSLEP, one in which I was proud to take on the role of Chair.

Could anyone have predicted this time last year the unprecedented global geo-political swings and changes we have witnessed and lived through over the last 12 months? What a year.


Over the last 12 months the GBSLEP cemented our position as the leading core city region for growth in economic output and business start-ups, with higher levels of private sector job creation than the national average and significant levels of export growth and inward investment.


Our region has all the ingredients and the momentum to compete in the increasingly competitive market place – let’s not hide from sharing with pride with anyone who will listen the great things that make our city region the place of choice.

Greater Birmingham's Economic Performance

Delivery Map

GBSLEP has agreed with Government a £433m Growth Programme – a pipeline of capital investments across Greater Birmingham & Solihull that will generate jobs, improve transport links, upskill our people, create houses and ultimately improve the quality of life – using the Local Growth Fund. The Growth Programme directly supports the LEP’s overall ambition for Greater Birmingham to be recognised as a top global city region by 2030.
