North East Economic Forum
Ian Swales, Liberal Democrat prospective MP for Redcar, was a guest speaker at the North East Economic Forum annual meeting at Ramside Hall, Durham. The theme was North East England and the Low Carbon Economy. Other speakers included Chancellor of the Exchequer Alistair Darling and Environment Minister Ed Miliband.
Ian took the opportunity to talk about the economic crisis on Teesside and the great opportunities that the area presents. Building on the existing businesses, assets and skills of the area, there's every chance to make Teesside a powerhouse of new low carbon technology and manufacturing. We're open for business!
