Strategic Partnerships

Over the past decade, our team has established a reputation for successfully delivering economic growth. Through our work securing and managing projects and programmes across the Solent valued at close to a quarter of a billion pounds, alongside unlocking key policy levers for the benefit of partners across the area, we have developed an in-depth understanding of the Solent economy and strong relationships across the public, private and academic sectors.

Trade & Investment

With a population of more than 1.25 million and over 42,000 businesses, the Solent area is an internationally-recognised key economic hub anchored around the Isle of Wight, the two cities of Portsmouth and Southampton, the New Forest, the M27 corridor and the Solent waterway.

Our position also means we are the UK’s gateway to European and global markets, with direct highway and rail links to London and the strategic national corridor, and international connections through our airport and two ports, which lie just 20 miles from the world’s busiest shipping route from Shanghai to Rotterdam.
