David Owen, chief executive of Gloucestershire LEP, which is driven by economic development company GFirst, said: "We have been working with our local businesses, the public sector and other organisations to find out what barriers they currently face and this vision aims to address those issues and ensure that Gloucestershire is meeting its economic potential.
"In 2022 we want Gloucestershire to have world class companies, a diverse business portfolio and a reputation for starting and growing great businesses. This document is just the start and there is a lot of work to be done by us and our stakeholders to ensure Gloucestershire's economy grows. But through this vision we have clear goals to work towards and through partnership our county will prosper."
All partners will now be working together to identify their activity plans to ensure the priorities are met. The LEP's Business Advisory Group, which draws together the sector group chairs of the LEP, will meet in November to clearly identify their roles in the vision.
The vision document will be reviewed quarterly to ensure the needs of the county are being met.
