Seven north east authorities are coming together to showcase all that the region has to offer at the UK’s premier international business event.

Members of the North East Combined Authority (NECA) – made up of North Tyneside, Northumberland, Durham, Gateshead, Newcastle, South Tyneside and Sunderland councils – are uniting to provide a single gateway for investors looking to work within the region.

They will be presenting the north east’s offer at the International Festival for Business (IFB).

NECA chairman, Coun Simon Henig, said: “Attending this event together is a real statement of intent for us, it is about showing the world what we have to offer in the north east, with one shared voice and a set of common strengths.”
