The regeneration of Teesworks, the development of a Freeport, the cutting-edge industry on the Wilton International site and investment by private businesses is showcased in the brochure.

The investment potential in Redcar and Cleveland is enhanced by its natural beauty, with the coastline and a gateway to the North York Moors.
