London Assembly unconvinced by Mayor’s Economic Strategy

boris johnsonThe Mayor of Londons Economic Development Strategy proposal document lacks detail and a clear vision of how he intends to improve Londoners quality of life, a London Assembly committee has concluded.

In its response to the Mayors proposals, the London Assemblys Economic Development, Culture, Sport and Tourism (EDCST) Committee has reported that is unclear about how the Mayor will put his plans into action.

They also say that the distinction he makes between inner and outer London in the strategy could be unhelpful, and that the importance of Londons links to the surrounding region is not given sufficient attention. They call on the Mayor to make efforts to align the capital with regional economic development strategies in the South East and East of England.

Dee Doocey AM, Chair of the EDCST Committee said: The Mayors proposals for Londons economic development need to be fleshed out. We want to see more detail about how he plans to improve Londoners quality of life. This is critical to the capitals ability to retain the talent that will fuel our economic recovery.”
