The Northern Powerhouse Partnership (NPP) develops a consensus among businesses, civic leaders and others about how the north of England can be more successful. We focus will be on encouraging cities and counties to work together to create a northern powerhouse.
By producing original research, encouraging innovative thinking and hosting thought-provoking events, the NPP encourages new policy ideas which will improve the north's quality of life and economy, and promote it as a place to work, study, live and invest.
The NPP is chaired by George Osborne and has a business-led Board which features influential business figures from across the North of England. Prominent city leaders across the region are also represented on the Board, in addition to Jim O’Neill, former Commercial Secretary to the Treasury, and John Cridland, Chair of Transport for the North (TfN). NPP is non-political and maintains an all-party approach.
