This May, North East Times is dedicating its on topic supplement to Sunderland and Wearside. Commercial opportunities are available to complement the independent editorial written by our team of journalists. Ambitious plans to regenerate, develop and grow Sunderland’s economy are well underway.
Led by Sunderland Council, the ten-year city plan is highly focussed on improving growth, prosperity and accelerating job creation. £200 million has been allocated for infrastructure investment alone.
Grade 1 office space at The Beam, the technology hub at Sunderland Software City and IAMP (International Advanced Manufacturing Park) demonstrate the breadth and depth of the determination to improve Sunderland as a place for business. New projects are being planned to enhance the prosperity of the city further.
This month’s on topic supplement also explores the economic development of County Durham in recent years and focuses on some of its strengths and opportunities.
We publish a specialist supplement focused on how local education establishments and training companies nurture skills for future success.
