Description

#BW19 Going for Gold - Launch of Ayrshire Business Week 2019

Sharon Hodgsons, Ayrshire Growth Deal

A presentation by Sharon Hodgson on the Ayrshire Growth Deal which is the single biggest investment by the public sector into Ayrshire in our lifetime and is an opportunity to transform our economic fortunes. With a total commitment of at least £250m from the UK and Scottish Governments as well as the three Ayrshire Councils and projects focused on key sectors and strategic sites across the region, the Growth Deal has the potential to strengthen Ayrshire’s economy over the next 10 to 15 years; to attract private sector investment; and to create a significant number of new, high value jobs. This event in the Chamber of Commerce Ayrshire Business Week is an opportunity to hear more about what the Ayrshire Growth Deal involves, what projects will be supported and how both the Growth Deal and the wider economic growth ambitions of the public sector can support you, your business and your communities to prosper.

Karen Yeomans, Regional Economic Strategy

Building on the announcement of the ambitious Ayrshire Growth Deal, partners across Ayrshire are now working collaboratively to develop a new economic strategy for the region through a new Regional Economic Partnership. This strategy will mark a new era for the Ayrshire economy. We recognise we cannot achieve transformation of Ayrshire’s economy without enhanced collaboration and new ways of working, across all sectors. We want Ayrshire to be known for leading the development of the digital and low carbon economy, and be an inclusive and attractive place. This session will provide an update on the development of a Regional Economic Strategy (RES) and will invite your views on the next steps to ensure Ayrshire’s economic success.
