Rishi Sunak visit Darlington Economic Campus this week 


The United Kingdom Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak visited Darlington Economic Campus (DEC) this week. 

Sunak shared the information on his official Facebook social media handle, where he noted his entire experience with the staff at the new office. 


He wrote that working from the Darlington Economic Campus was a great experience this week.

“I’ve been spending time meeting staff and touring the fantastic new offices where they will soon all be working – and even joined them for a Jubilee celebration tea.” He added. 

The UK Economic Secretary John Glen MP and Financial Secretary Lucy Frazer MP joined Sunak on his visit to DEC to continue to deliver on the government’s promise to ensure those living outside London are at the heart of government decision-making.

Further, he informed his visit to the northeast while hosting a Treasury Connect event at Thorn Lighting in Spennymoor; he also visited local business AA Flags, where he met several employees who are currently making flags for the Jubilee Celebration.

Further, he noted: During the Treasury Connect, I heard from Thorn Lighting employees about the issues on their minds, including Levelling Up and the Cost of Living, and took the opportunity to answer their questions and hear their concerns.

Alongside the Treasury, the Darlington Economic Campus will house teams from:

  • Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
  • Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport
  • Department for International Trade
  • Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities
  • Competition and Markets Authority
  • Office for National Statistics

They will be working alongside the Department for Education, which already has a base in Darlington.
