The Council & democracy Our Manchester: a thriving and sustainable city

We’ll have a diverse, distinctive and well-connected economy creating jobs and opportunities for all.

There’ll be good support for businesses – established and growing.

We’ll aim to be a leading digital city, rich in culture.

We will build on our strengths such as life sciences and ‘advanced materials’ like graphene, at top business hubs like Airport City and Corridor Manchester.

To get there we’ll make sure workforce has the skills needed: we'll grow the economy, but with serious commitment to protect the environment and reduce the impact of climate change.
