Exeter is a major economic engine in the South West of England with a credible track record of growth even through recent difficult times. In the top 10 of growing cities, and with its workforce having the lowest proportion with no qualifications in the UK, it has seen a step change in its economic performance.
Growth is being pursued hand in hand with major housing, infrastructure and leisure projects to ensure successful and sustainable development of the city and its interdependent hinterland. The overall growth programme is geared to the creation of some 26,000 jobs over the next 10-12 years. The programme will build on the area`s strengths in environment and data science, agri-tech, health and professional services.
