Helping Kent businesses move forward

An opportunity to hear how the Kent and Medway Economic Partnership’s Renewal and Resilience Plan aims to help Kent’s businesses move forward

A presentation and discussion of the Kent and Medway Economic Renewal and Resilience Plan will take place at a virtual event at 9.30am on Monday 10th August.

The Plan is a framework for action in the light of the severe economic challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, especially in relation to those issues that relate to jobs, business growth and investment.

The aim of the Kent and Medway Economic Partnership (KMEP) is to drive forward economic growth and prosperity throughout the region.

This webinar is aimed primarily at Kent and Medway’s business leaders, freelancers and entrepreneurs. It provides an opportunity for you to hear about the actions being taken locally to support businesses through this challenging period and to kick-start growth.

The Government has put in place an unprecedented package of measures to protect jobs and businesses on a national scale: the Kent and Medway Economic Renewal and Resilience Plan is focused on Kent and Medway.

It sets out the challenges that we face as we emerge from the crisis and provides a framework for action for the next 18 months.

KCC Leader Roger Gough

Leader of Kent County Council, Roger Gough, said: “The business community across the county has been hit incredibly hard by the pandemic, so this discussion is an opportunity for us to develop some clear thinking about how we can get through this period of uncertainty and renew the Kent economy.

“Our Economic Renewal and Resilience plan sets out measures to address this economic crisis and support the recovery, future prosperity, employment and livelihoods across in every part of Kent.”

The keynote speakers at this virtual event are: Jo James, KMEP Vice-Chairman, Dr Adam Marshall, Director General of British Chamber of Commerce; Roger Gough, Leader of Kent County Council, and Dawn Hudd, Assistant Director Physical and Cultural Regeneration at Medway Council.

After the keynote speakers have concluded, there will be time for them to answer questions put forward by the audience. (Please note that if time does not permit all questions to be answered, written responses will be sent after the event).

A copy of the Kent and Medway Economic Renewal and Resilience Plan will be sent electronically to everyone who signs up for the webinar.
