Warwickshire Means Business!
Monday, January 25, 2016
The county has seen a fast rate of recovery since the 2008 recession, allowing Warwickshire to overtake the national average from 2011 until present. In 2014, £26,003 was produced per head in Warwickshire, compared to £25,367 nationally.
Warwickshire is one of just three areas in the Midlands that have a GVA per head figure above the national average (the other two being Nottingham and Solihull).
This differs to England’s growth in its service industries; reflecting the importance of priority sectors such as Transport & Logistics and Advanced Manufacturing Engineering to Warwickshire’s economy in terms of jobs and investment.
