A mindset for growth in the Midlands
Read time : 3 mins Added: 24/02/2023
The Midlands has always been a region that refuses to stand still. So, what are the growth opportunities in 2023?
We’re working closely with businesses, academia and devolved government to understand how to shape a world class competitive economy that benefits everyone.
Businesses in the East and West Midlands have faced many challenges in recent years, including skills shortages, supply chain issues, on top of broader economic headwinds, which look likely to continue in early 2023.
But despite this, local firms are looking at the new year with positivity. Those that remain optimistic and look to turn challenges into opportunities for upskilling, driving sustainability and investing in their technology, will thrive.
