The National Economic Council, chaired by the Prime Minister, will
coordinate economic policies across Government; the Regional Economic
Council will involve Regional Ministers, Regional Development Agency chairs
and other relevant groups and will ensure that the issues and concerns of
each region are heard and acted on across Government; and the Council of
Regional Ministers will identify common issues from across the regions and
take action where appropriate, including making recommendations to the
National Economic Council and the Regional Economic Council.
What is the Regional Economic Task Group (RETG)?
The RETG is a made up of key regional bodies, who will meet on a monthly
basis to take a collective, strategic perspective on regional economic
issues, and establish ways of joining up efforts to speed up the response
to economic, employment, financial and housing challenges in the region.
The Task Group will also feed back information to the National and
Regional Economic Councils and Council of Regional Ministers and advise
them on particular issues facing the South West of England, and
some of the measures put in place to tackle regional challenges.
