Today I went to the London launch of the East Kent Grow For It project. It was an early 7am start for me and my fellow MPs who represent the East Kent constituencies.
Grow For It aims to promoting East Kent as one of the best examples of a region where the Regional Growth Fund is working to good effect and also to attract London-based businesses who might look to relocate in our area, or to start a new business here.
This is so important for Dover and Deal, and ties in neatly with my campaign for more jobs and money. With Conservative leadership across the county we have made great strides with the RGF, Enterprise Zone status and the Big Local money all tangible examples of what can be done when we put our minds to it.
Dover and Deal is open for business and with Grow For it backing us things can only improve.
