The East deserves parity in terms of recognition, support and engagement
On 6th September, the Eastern Powerhouse hosted a Members' meeting, followed by a dinner, where local MPs, Peers, and business leaders came together to discuss the region's needs and untapped potential.
James Palmer, Eastern Powerhouse Chair, echoed the sentiment of those present:
"The new PM already knows about the potential of the East because she represents a Norfolk constituency. She knows the region can deliver the highest rises in growth and productivity for the least amount of investment, relative to other regions. That’s why we are calling on her not to overlook the East but give parity to the region.”
