Liverpool City Region, made up of Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, St Helens, Sefton and Wirral, is a hub of industrial innovation, culture, creativity and unique sense of place. Areas of the city have successfully been regenerated following deindustrialisation with investment strengthening assets and supporting diversification of the economy, whilst Liverpool has become a popular visitor destination.
