This report sets out how, by bringing the UK’s least productive areas in line with their best performing neighbours, we could add a £208 billion boost to the economy by 2024.

It also outlines how the regional differences in productivity in the UK can be explained by four main factors:

  • Educational attainment.
  • Better transport links.
  • Better management practices.
  • Exporting.
