The half-day conference will bring together national and regional politicians, academics and business leaders to discuss how West Yorkshire can build on existing strengths, as well as developing new ones, in order to harness opportunities presented by The Levelling Up Agenda, and maximise growth not just across the region, but across the whole UK

The recently published Levelling Up White Paper sets out the Government’s ambition for all places to achieve their productivity potential, supporting economic growth and improvements in living standards across the UK. But what does this mean in practice for West Yorkshire’s cities, whose success are critical to a more prosperous region and country? Will a renewed focus on supporting innovation, research and development in the city region drive growth and prosperity for local people? And what future devolutions deals should the city region be seeking, if it is to have the powers and funding to realise its full economic potential?
