It includes major projects such as Liverpool SuperPort, the Mersey Gateway, Atlantic Gateway, Liverpool Waters and Wirral Waters, and emphasises support for small firms and accelerating business development.
The proposed board will also include honorary graduate Sir Terry Leahy, the outgoing Chief Executive of Tesco, Rod Holmes, Chair of the Mersey Partnership and Peter Nears, the Strategic Planning Director of Peel Holdings.
