President Mike Matthews said: “Our manifesto clearly sets out the changes our members believe will make the biggest positive impact on business success in our region.

“Last year saw some dramatic shifts in the political landscape. The outcome of the EU referendum, the appointment of a new Cabinet and further devolution to parts of the region have each presented new challenges and opportunities. We know North East England is a great place to do business, but we want it to be the best and I believe this action plan will help make this become a reality.”

The manifesto calls for more decision-making powers to be devolved to the region.
