Businesses are being invited to help shape the delivery plans for the new Economic Strategy for Norfolk and Suffolk.

Led by New Anglia LEP, the economic strategy brings together public and private sector partners to highlight priority themes and places where investment and action is most likely to drive growth.

A series of consultation events will give businesses the chance to add their own activities and aspirations to the strategy delivery plans.

Events are taking place in King’s Lynn on January 25, Norwich on January 29, Bury St Edmunds on January 30, Ipswich on February 6, Eye on February 14 and Great Yarmouth on February 19.

Lisa Roberts, head of strategy at New Anglia LEP, said: “We’re really keen to hear from businesses so that their activities and plans can form part of this work – after all, its local businesses which will create new jobs and growth.”
