Decisions:

Mike Damms, LEP Director and SME Business Champion, presented a report (circulated) which provided the LEP Board with an update on Trade and Internationalisation: A Global Lancashire.

 

It was highlighted that Lancashire's economic role and contribution to international trade is under developed within the LEP's current Strategic Economic Plan.  However the SEP Refresh allows the opportunity to review this key issue, especially in light of recent Brexit developments.

 

LEP Board Members expressed their support for the Outline International Trade Delivery Plan (attached at Appendix 'A' to the report).

 

Resolved:  The LEP Board:

 

(i)  Noted the contents of the report, including the Outline International Trade Delivery Plan; and

 

(ii)  Requested that Officers include the analysis within the report in the key inputs to the SEP refresh.
