From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The National Economic Development Council (NEDC) was a corporatist economic planning forum set up in the 1962 in the United Kingdom to bring together management, trades unions and government in an attempt to address Britain's relative economic decline. It was supported by the National Economic Development Office (NEDO). Both were known as Neddy.

The NEDC was modelled on the French Economic and Social Council.

Margaret Thatcher distrusted both planning and corporatism and mainly ignored the body throughout the 1980s. It was finally abolished by John Major in June 1992.

However within the European Union the United Kingdom is a member of a similar international body, namely the European Union's Economic and Social Committee.
