Go Trade

Delivering Economic Growth through TRADitional Markets

July 17 – March 21

The Great Yarmouth Town Centre Partnership, along with Great Yarmouth Borough Council, are both partners in a recently approved EU funded project to reinvigorate declining markets in England and France. ‘Go Trade’ is a €5.6m project that aims to reverse the decline being seen in visitors to local markets (and their town centres) through the delivery of training, mentoring, improved technology and animations to support the growth and development of local markets. Other project partner towns in the UK include Basildon Borough Council (lead Partner) Gravesham Borough Council and Castle Point Borough Council whilst French partners include Caen and Amiens.   The programme of initiatives will start in 2018 and run until the end of 2020 and culminate in the establishment of a cross border ‘GO TRADE’ brand for markets.
