Rural Economy: the National Picture

There is large variation between the economic performances of rural areas. Government Offices work with partners to help improve the economic productivity of the least well performing rural areas.

One of the Government’s main priorities in rural policy is economic and social regeneration, through supporting enterprise across rural England and targeting more resources at areas of greatest need.

The aims are to reduce the gap in productivity between the least well performing rural areas and the national average, and to improve the access to services for people in rural areas.
