All the work that Advantage West Midlands does aligns with Connecting to Success; the West Midlands Economic Strategy and contributes to improving our region as ‘a global centre where people and businesses choose to connect’. The West Midlands is already recognised as a great place to invest, work, learn, visit and live.
Our policies are developed on behalf of the region with a broad range of partners from across the public, private, voluntary and community sectors.
The economic growth of the West Midlands is influenced by a complex range of factors. These need to be understood so that effective approaches can be developed to address them. We have grouped our policies under the three main components of the economy: Business, Place and People.
A balanced and strong contribution from all three of these elements is necessary to create a successful and vibrant economy for the West Midlands.
