The East of England Regional Development Agency (EEDA) is responsible for developing and delivering, with regional partners, a Regional Economic Strategy which sets out the economic aspirations of the region and how they are going to achieve them.
The purpose of Improvement East is to coordinate, challenge, support and accelerate the drive for improvement and efficiency in localities to a higher level than would otherwise be possible.
The Government Office for the East of England (GO-East) brings together into a single operation the varied regional activities of a range of Government departments with the aim of making the region a better place to live and work in.
