New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership was established by Government in 2010. It is a unique business-led collaboration between the private, public and education sectors across Norfolk and Suffolk. Its ambition is to drive economic growth and transform the local economy into a global centre for talent and innovation.
There are 39 LEPs across England and they are independent from Government. New Anglia LEP represents one of the fastest growing regions in the country, with 1.6 million people and around 55,000 businesses.
The LEP is advised by a Board, whose role is to guide and advise the executive team to ensure sharp focus on activities to help grow jobs and remove the barriers to growth, for business. Councillor John Griffiths currently acts as the Suffolk District representative on the LEP.
