The key role of the Local Economic Assessment is to paint a picture of the economic state of the borough. For this to be as complete as possible, the assessment should relate to the wider regional economic perspective.
It is also important that assessments have a shared understanding and accessibility, to other boroughs to identify shared economic goals and to minimise the possibility conflicting policies.
To assist officers it meeting these objectives and to share good ideas and intelligence, The London Boroughs have agreed to share their assessments with colleagues from neighbouring boroughs and with from across the capital.

The Central London Economic Assessment (CLEA) described the make-up of the Central London economy in 2010. It reviewed performance on the eve of the May general election and local elections in the London boroughs. A Central London Prospectus was published as the executive summary of the CLEA, providing one page snapshots of the twelve topics which made up the assessment.
