With the release of the Industrial Green Paper, business chiefs in Kent and Medway have urged the Government to continue investing in the county as “a proven winner''.
The forward-thinking strategy outlines plans to invest in science, research and innovation, upgrade infrastructure, support businesses growth, improve procurement and encourage a trade and inward investment policy across the whole country.
The plan has been backed by the South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP), which champions the economic growth of Kent and Medway.
Chairman Christian Brodie said: “As we transition away from the single market and the opportunities this presents for business and the economy, securing a key role for the south east in creating a future competitive, global nation.''
“Developing an economy based upon innovation, infrastructure and skills is a vision we share with the government, and one we will work closely with the relevant departments and our partners to deliver.''
“While we recognise the urgent need to improve productivity across the whole of the country we continue to argue the case that in these time of uncertainty, the government must back the south east as a proven winner.''
