Paul Cherpeau, chief executive of Liverpool Chamber responds to Levelling Up White Paper

Responding to the publication of the Levelling Up White Paper, Paul Cherpeau, chief executive of Liverpool Chamber said:

“Businesses in the Liverpool City Region will be eager to understand how the Levelling Up White Paper translates into a set of effective measures which directly improves their own prospects to grow, attract talent and create wealth in their communities.

While the latest announcements appear to have limited direct impact on our own region, our approach to economic development must fundamentally recognise the value of successful businesses and they must be at the heart of our efforts to stimulate better outcomes around issues such as health inequality and social mobility.

The Liverpool City Region has its own unique challenges and opportunities – to truly level up, we need a strong and diverse business community in an environment that encourages growth and enables external investment, where the public and private sector work together towards a common purpose.”
