Cambridgeshire should be the County which is immediately associated with successful business and business innovation. We need to encourage this and make sure everyone knows the County is not only open for business but is a great place to be in business.
We are the economic heart of the region. The hi-tech, bio tech and increasingly clean tech sectors, along with the Universities here have led this. The Local Enterprise Partnership will be a crucial factor in how we develop this but the County Council can play it’s part in helping make sure we have the right conditions for business to thrive.
I have run successful businesses and understand the sort of support business is looking for.
I expect to be standing shoulder to shoulder with business leaders seeking to attract business to our county.
