Growing Our Economy

In Sunderland, by working closely with partners , a new smart and sustainable vision for the city's economy has been established, which identifies a small number of clear economic priorities for the city. The priorities identified will help Sunderland's economy become stronger and more resilient so that it can provide jobs for future generations.

Work focused on the economy is overseen by the Economic Leadership Board.  We also have a number of partnerships/groups that feed into the work of the Economic Leadership Board such as the International Strategy Group and the Cultural Partnership.
