Spanning the north of England and including the cities of Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Newcastle, and Sheffield, the Northern Powerhouse has united to deliver to the world a wealth of world-class expertise and business talent.

Businesses here export £60bn of goods annually to every corner of the globe, yet there remains massive potential for future international growth.
