This paper sets out the response of the South West Trade Union Congress to the review of the Regional Economic Strategy of 2005 which considered what measures should be taken to encourage sustainable development to deliver prosperity for all. The response of the South West TUC can be summarised as follows:

• Prepare for growth: plan housing and job demands
• Link RES to Spatial Strategy
• Full Employment Strategy: calls for a new approach that brings together partners and policies to tackle economic inactivity
• Equalities: economic success increasing demands a stronger commitment to equal opportunities
• Skills: stress for workforce development and the role of unions
• Employment Relations: productivity and performance improvements require better treatment of workers
• Manufacturing: we can make it better in the South West
• Sustainable Development: the union case for and contribution to environmental protection
