Following the economic downturn of 2008 and several years of recession and recent improvements in economic conditions in the UK we have produced a monthly economic update for County Durham.
The key objective of this is to update partners and stakeholders on the current economic situation in the County. The updates are a vital step in our understanding of the up to date position of the local economy and are part of the County Durham Economic Assessment.
The CDEP Board also produces an annual State Of The County Report to review progress in line with our measures of success, please see below.
