Kent and Medway, a Brighter Future
Event: Kent County Show
at County Showground, Maidstone
13 July 2007
Richard Scase contributed to a debate on the future of Kent and Medway. He warned against complacency and although there was growing investment and renewal in the area, this was also happening in other parts of Europe. If Kent was now running instead of walking, it would need to gallop if it was to keep up. He stated he was disappointed with the rate of entrepreneurship in Kent and Medway, and that unless this improved all the infrastructure investment would be a waste of money. He condemned the buy-to-let market for offering a too easy option to wealth creating entrepreneurship.
