Description

Midlothian Council is developing a new 5 year regional Economic Strategy.

The strategy aims to recognise the key economic opportunities and challenges within the region, identifying the area's key assets, growth sectors and skills required in order to drive innovation, investment and inclusive growth.

Tourism is a key sector for Midlothian. To help develop this strategy a number of facilitated workshops have been scheduled and would like to invite key partners and stakeholders to come along to have your say. This will help us identify the priorities for the area and how we can work together to achieve these.

This session will run as part of the quarterly Midlothian Tourism Forum Meeting
