Yorkshire & Humber is one of England’s largest and most dynamic regions, boasting first-class universities, a mix of old and new industries, beautiful countryside, and vibrant cities and towns. The region has attracted considerable investment in recent years, and its economy has grown to over £80 billion – as large as that of Scotland. Although the pace of change has slowed since the credit crunch and there remain difficult challenges ahead (in skills and transport, for example), the region maintains its strong identity and its sense of ambition and purpose, as shown by the essays in this booklet.
