Thames Valley Berkshire LEP publishes comprehensive evidence based business report
Thames Valley Berkshire LEP has published an annual Business in Berkshire report for the last three years providing an evidence base for the sub-region’s economy to inform all those involved in supporting local businesses. The latest report was due to be published at the LEP’s AGM on 24th March 2020 demonstrating the continued vibrant health of the Thames Valley Berkshire economy and its ongoing capacity to attract strong levels of Foreign Direct Investment.
The Covid-19 pandemic and its effect on the health and economy of our area is unprecedented and will have significant consequences for the sub region for some time. In response, the LEP has established a Covid-19 Task & Finish Group of key stakeholders including the Berkshire Business Growth Hub, Thames Valley Chambers of Commerce, FSB, IoD, CBI and Local Authorities to work collaboratively to support businesses to survive at this time.
We have decided to publish the Business in Berkshire report so that it can provide a baseline of the economy as at beginning of March 2020 and importantly inform a recovery strategy for the region as part of the Berkshire Local Industrial Strategy. The LEP’s Research Team is monitoring the impact of the Coronavirus closely and will be producing updated reports which we will share with the business support community on an ongoing basis.
