Powerhouse proposals gain more support
LAW firm Squire Patton Boggs and the University of Leeds hosted key stakeholders from across the Northern Powerhouse at a workshop that focused on industrial strategy.
The workshop took place at the Northern Powerhouse Business Summit, which was held as part of the Great Exhibition of the North in Newcastle and Gateshead.
The workshop sought to identify opportunities to influence policy and investment, drive economic growth across the North and leave a legacy for future generations.
John Alderton, the office managing partner of Squire Patton Boggs, said: “We were delighted to have been given the opportunity to provide a workshop at the inaugural Northern Powerhouse Business Summit.
“We found one consistent factor – overwhelming support and engagement from stakeholders across all of the North and wider afield. This demonstrates the commitment to the Northern Powerhouse.”
