I have been asked to reply.
Each RDA, in consultation with stakeholders in its region, has drawn up a regional economic strategy identifying the key priorities and sectors for securing the region's economic growth. BERR and other Government Departments are also involved in developing the strategy, as are businesses in the region. BERR ministers review and approve RDA corporate plans to ensure that they deliver against the priorities identified in the strategy.
The RDAs are also responsible for the delivery of Business Link advice to firms in all sectors.
