Local MP Stephen McPartland hosted the Information Society Alliance (EURIM) 'Britain: Open for Business' reception at the House of Commons to launch its first policy study on Shared Infrastructure to help keep Britain competitive in the global Information Society.
Stephen said, “I was very pleased to host this event on how we ensure that ‘Britain is Open for Business’. It is essential that Government does all it can to ensure Britain is an attractive location for companies to invest in. We were joined by Ed Vaizey MP, Minister for Communications, Culture and the Creative Industries, who welcomed the event. Stevenage, is the base for many high-tech companies, and we are helping to lead the UK out of recession. It is essential we keep Stevenage at the forefront of the high-technology sector and ensure multinational companies continue to invest in jobs and facilities locally. I will keep raising the profile of Stevenage as a centre of high technology excellence."
