Entrepreneurs have major role to play in maximising on North East devolution, says Nigel Mills

Entrepreneurs’ Forum Chairman Nigel Mills, gives his views on the devolution deal for Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland announced in the Budget this week.

Nigel said:

“Devolution is a huge step towards becoming the masters of our own destiny and capitalising on the passion and enthusiasm we have in the North East to make our region stronger and more prosperous.

“It is essential we maximise on this opportunity and be collaborative across the public and private sector to create a sustainable and vibrant area.

“The leadership skills of entrepreneurs and business leaders will be crucial and it is vital that they have a strong voice in the shaping of the area to make a real difference to the people and businesses of the North East.”
