Vibrant Economy - unlocking the UK's potential

388 views

Published on

We are seeking to stimulate ideas and actions that can create a vibrant economy – one which realises the shared potential of companies, cities, people and communities across the UK.

The three areas we believe are important to building a vibrant economy are:

Trust and Integrity
Sustainable Growth
Thriving Environments

How it will work

An independent Commission will steer a series of thematic and city-based inquiries over the course of the next 18 months, supported by a sustainable growth tracker, and a community of individuals and organisations who exemplify what it will take to build a vibrant economy: the Faces of a Vibrant Economy.
