Vision outlines economic blueprint.

A "ROUTE map" for the future of Liverpool's economy was launched today before an audience of political and business leaders.

The blueprint, drawn up by the economic development agency Liverpool Vision, aims to promote Liverpool as an inter nationally competitive city. It was unveiled at the ECHO

Arena and BT Convention Centre (ACC) before a specially invited audience.

Liverpool Vision chairman Mike Parker told the audience at the launch: "Liverpool Vision's task is to create the conditions in which business thrives and jobs are created and we face significant challenges.

"We launch this economic prospectus at a time when competition is already tough and is becoming tougher.

"The world at the other side of the recession will be very different and international markets will become even more important while technological change will become even faster." The prospectus sets out the key priorities for the public sector for creating the conditions in which business can invest with confidence, thrive and compete and identifies four pillars of ambition for the Liverpool of the future: quality place, vibrant economy, global connectivity and thriving people.

Liverpool City Council leader Warren Bradley said that the city could not afford to "stand still".
