Organising Local Economic Development

The Role of Development Agencies and Companies

image of Organising Local Economic Development

Development processes occur within a wider geographical area than local government, and in some cases encompass a broader scope than provincial or national governments. Thus substantial inter-governmental co-operation and public-private partnership are needed. This book identifies how development agencies and companies work, what they do and what constitutes success and value added. It explores international practices in a variety of locations and contexts, and defines both the success factors and the challenges associated with economic development agencies and companies.

Liverpool Vision

Liverpool Vision was established in April 2008. It brought together the activities of three companies – Liverpool Vision (a pre-existing organisation of the same name), Liverpool Land Development Company and Business Liverpool – and integrates economic and physical development, investment and business and enterprise support within a delivery-focused, private-sector-led company. The establishment of a single economic development company for the city was spearheaded by Liverpool City Council following consultation with business. As well as its support of the business community, the organisation plays a strong role in the domestic and international positioning of Liverpool in conjunction with regional and city regional partners.
