I went up to Cambridge last night to participate in the BBC One show Our Economy.

The show gathered a panel of 20 experts, business men and women, entrepreneurs, academics and politicians from the region to talk about the economic outlook, and what we were each doing to help the economy.

I was proud to be there representing Harlow, particularly as it has been revealed that Harlow is the most economically prosperous town in the UK, fighting back with the strongest business growth in the UK.

Its great that Harlow is managing to produce so many new businesses, which is partly down to our great location; nestled between London and Cambridge next to two motorways and with the airport just up the road. But it is also due to the Council’s business friendly attitude, and our desire to work with the business community.

It’s really pleasing to see a Council Policy that I insisted on bearing fruit.
