New figures show North East as best area for job creation outside of the capital

New figures from the Department for International Trade have shown that the North East was the best area for job creation outside of London last year.

The North East has outperformed every other English region outside London on the number of new jobs created from foreign direct investment in 2019/20, relative to its population.

The latest figures from the Department for International Trade (DIT) show that in 2019/20 the North East created 179 jobs for every 100,000 people (working age population), placing it behind only London as the best performing area of the country.
