The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) invited businesses to take part in a live webcast to mark the official launch of its economic strategy.
The strategy has involved input from hundreds of local businesses and will set the future direction for economic growth in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly for the next eight years.
On Thursday 28 June at 11am the strategy was launched via a live webcast with LEP Chairman Chris Pomfret. There was also a short film featuring a number of successful businesses from Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly that reflected the key points of the strategy.
This was followed by an hour long webchat with Chris and fellow LEP board member Simon Tregoning, who is chairman of Helston based Classic Cottages.
Chris said: "The strategy has been a year in the making and we have spoken to around 250 local businesses individually and through the 15 road shows we took around Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly earlier this year.
We received almost 100 responses to the draft strategy we published in May and have been very encouraged by the positive and constructive response from the business community.
We want businesses to be in the driving seat to help us deliver this vision and that is why we are trying to reach as many as possible by launching it online"
The strategy is focused around four main themes:
Priorities include inspiring all businesses to reach their national and global potential; creating great careers; creating value out of knowledge and using the natural environment responsibily as a key economic asset.
