Alan Johnson : RDAs are required to take an integrated and sustainable approach to the economic development of their regions, tackling competitiveness and productivity issues and also the underlying problems, including inequalities.
All RDAs have led the development of Frameworks for Regional Employment and Skills Action (FRESAs). These bring together key regional and local bodies to produce a shared analysis of the region's labour market, and an action plan for meeting the region's skills and employment needs and for giving individuals the opportunity and skills to find and progress in employment. The FRESAs enable regional partners together to identify and address key issues for the regional labour market and agree partners who will take responsibility for equal opportunity, including increasing female participation rates where necessary.
