Delaware and English economic development organizations to partner

Delaware businesses in industries including bioscience, fintech and advanced engineering may benefit from an agreement the Delaware Prosperity Partnership signed recently with an economic development group in England’s North East region.

Under the agreement, DPP and the North East Local Enterprise Partnership will each promote the other’s region to companies looking for foreign growth opportunities. They will also work on joint events, and training opportunities through local universities, according to a press release.

North East Local Enterprise Partnership promotes economic development in the region including County Durham, Northumberland, Tyne and Ware.

“This agreement was a natural fit for our organizations and for the areas we represent,” DPP CEO Kurt Foreman said in the release. “Delaware and North East England will actively support one another in sectors where we both have strengths, helping our local companies become international companies by directly connecting them to our partners overseas. We look forward to the cross-Atlantic success stories and the jobs that will follow.”
