We have also packed in plenty of insightful data and analysis, as you would expect from Insider. We have designed this as a handy inward investment guide that can remain on your computer all year round. Alongside features on all of our city regions, we also turn the spotlight on the key industry sectors that are set to drive the local economy forward. So roll your mouse (or your finger) around and see what you find. We think this is an exciting new format, and we hope you agree.
