According to research by Beauhurst, UK businesses saw the highest levels of investment on record in 2017. Despite this, investment levels across the North East and Yorkshire fell dramatically (34% and 10% respectively). The data also shows that public sector backed investment fell across the country. But whilst other regions, including the North West – or Manchester specifically, compensated with private investment, this didn’t happen in Yorkshire or the North East.
