So on Monday 23rd February the Government Cabinet came to Southampton. Does this help the local economy? I’m not sure about this, but it certainly helps to raise the area’s profile, albeit I feel temporarily. They also have put some information up on the SEEDA website about what’s going on in the South East. http://www.seeda.co.uk/news_&_events/press_releases/2009/20090223.asp There is some good news on investment for high growth companies but how much of it actually filters through remains to be seen. Me, I’m off to get into peak condition so that I have the stamina to plough through all the reading necessary to understand the process!
