The Western Gateway

9 September 2020

Exciting developments across Gloucestershire and the wider region on a new economic partnership!

The Western Gateway is a strategic partnership promoting and maximising economic growth across south Wales and the south west of England to create jobs, boost prosperity and support the world-renowned universities and businesses of the region. Stretching from Swansea, Cardiff and Newport to Bristol, Bath, Swindon, Gloucester and Cheltenham, the Gateway, alongside rural communities in the wider economic area, already outperforms the UK average in terms of economic output, and is primed and ready to do so much more.

Chair of the Western Gateway, Katherine Bennett and Senior Vice President in the UK for Airbus said; “Working together across borders we offer a unique proposition to UK plc: to propel transformative, inclusive and greener growth as part of building a new future for the British economy. Whilst we are an economic high performer, we are also a region of contrasts, with significant pockets of deprivation, low skills and low pay in some of our cities and rural areas.”

“Delivering this vision will add more than £56bn to the UK economy by 2030, helping us lead the UK’s transition to a net zero future”.
