SELEP activities are guided by our Economic Recovery and Renewal Strategy – Working Together for a Faster, Smarter and More Sustainable Economic Recovery – which sets out how we will work with partners to support a path to recovery and renewal in the short to medium term.
This strategy sets out priority areas that have been identified as the unique driving forces behind the South East economy and through which we will also support the economic missions set out within the Levelling Up White Paper.
There are several distinct areas of activity that SELEP delivers in support of these priorities.
