Roadshow to find economic success stories
A series of roadshows is being held to provide an update on the work of the South of Scotland Economic Partnership.
Officials will be out and about to provide people, businesses, organisations and communities with an update on what they’ve done in their first 18 months, as well as the future of a dedicated enterprise agency for the south of Scotland.
One roadshow will be held in the Gordon Memorial Hall in Castle Douglas on June 4 with another in the CatStrand at New Galloway on June 10. Both start at 6.45pm.
Partnership chairman, Professor Russel Griggs, said: “One year ago we held 26 events across the south of Scotland having conversations about the challenges and opportunities we have and the potential powers and focus of a new agency.
“Twelve months on much has changed – a bill is progressing through the Scottish Parliament to establish South of Scotland Enterprise and more than £8 million of funding has been distributed by the Scottish Government through the Partnership for a wide range of projects.
“I’d encourage anyone who has an interest in the future of the economy and skills and training in the south of Scotland to attend one of the upcoming events.”
Online booking for the roadshows is essential. Places can be booked at www.sup.org.uk/sosep.asp.
