Mr Street said: “The private sector helped drive the West Midlands to become the fastest-growing region outside of London before the outbreak of covid, with record numbers in work, record homes being built, and record investment in public transport.
“But the pandemic has knocked us for six and it is mission critical we now leverage in even more private sector investment to turbo charge our recovery and get us back on our feet quickly.
“We have a track record of delivery and a new multibillion-pound prospectus ready to unveil to the world at MIPIM.”
