Insight East is the name of the new economic intelligence centre for the East of England. Powered by EEDA, Insight East has been developed to help decision makers better understand the economy.

The Insight East Annual Review 2009 is now available.

It will help provide answers to questions such as how the economy is changing, how it’s performing and where growth may come from and when.

The service analyses economic data to provide clear and succinct reports on the key trends and issues facing the East of England. Where data are not available, Insight East will consider options for providing it.
