A dynamic economy


Our aim is to create the right conditions to “accelerate business-led economic growth in Hertfordshire” and for the county to become a world-leading economy; one of the top three in the country outside London.

We have recently refreshed our Strategic Economic Plan to take into account wider economic trends after a consultation with local businesses. The final refreshed SEP will be released in the near future.
