Promoting investment and business growth at UKREiiF

Promoting investment and business growth

D2N2 LEP is hosting a panel session at the UK’s Real Estate Investment and Infrastructure Forum (UKREiif) 2023 in Leeds on 17 May to discuss the huge potential of upcoming devolution in the East Midlands for businesses and investors.

The UK’s Real Estate Investment and Infrastructure Forum – UKREiiF connects people, places and businesses to accelerate the Levelling Up Agenda, whilst unlocking sustainable, inclusive and transformational investment across the UK.

The D2N2 region, covering Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, has a proud industrial and manufacturing track record and is at the forefront of economic development, with the East Midlands Freeport and the East Midlands Development Company having been recently established.

The D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is an organisation which supports business growth and looks to level up productivity across our region. We connect employers, education and government, and we work closely with the investment promotion agencies Marketing Derby, Invest in Nottingham and Destination Chesterfield, to promote inward investment and broker partnership working.

We are non-political, evidence-driven and publicly accountable. Over the past 10 years we have secured £1.5 billion investment and 20,000 jobs across our region. Find out more about our Business Growth and Innovation

We are on track to become the home of the UK’s newest and largest combined authority in 2024 as a result of our devolution deal which will bring a minimum of £38m a year from 2024 and will put our region into the premier league of economic regions. Even before the new East Midlands Combined Authority has been established, the region has already secured a new £80m investment zone and around another £40m of capital investment in housing and infrastructure from Government because of our devolution deal.

The way we will make the most of the huge array of opportunities that devolution is set to bring is by continuing our legacy of public/private partnership working, building on our track record of investments and projects and by collaborating with business and our colleagues in Government and the public sector and the investment promotion agencies, convening and working with a wide range of stakeholders.
