The British Chambers of Commerce met with Minister for Regional and Local Economic Development, Mark Prisk and Minister for Decentralisation, Greg Clark today to discuss the views of the business community and local government on the creation of Local Enterprise Partnerships.  

Commenting after the meeting, Dr. Adam Marshall, Director of Policy at the British Chambers of Commerce, said:    

“Chambers of Commerce across the country are working closely with councils to develop dynamic local enterprise partnerships – contributing specific ideas on how to boost local productivity, create private sector jobs and ensure economic diversity. While these arrangements will look different in each city or county, they must be genuine public-private partnerships – and they must focus relentlessly on growth”.
