Local Economy Monitoring Group

Earlier today, I attended the City Council's Local Economy Monitoring Group, at which senior council officers, councillors and business representatives such as the Chamber of Commerce discuss matters of economic importance to Dundee.

We had very positive feedback on the recent Dundee Economic Summit, and also discussed the city's economic strategy, youth employment, progress with the renewables sector and the waterfront project.

I asked the Scottish Enterprise representative about progress with and business interest in District 10 at Seabraes and was pleased to learn about the positive response to this initiative.
