On Friday, Michael opened the fifth annual Sevenoaks Business Show at the Stag Plaza.
In his speech, Michael spoke about the 600 new businesses that have been established in Sevenoaks since 2010 and the constituency’s historic low level of unemployment, which has fallen by sixty percent since 2010. He also referred to the Government’s support for the ‘South East Accelerator’ with lower business rates and corporation tax.
Michael concluded by saying: “This is the fifth annual show and each year there is more and more evidence of the incredible success of our local enterprises. I am always proud to be Patron of the Sevenoaks Town Partnership – but I am never more proud than when I open this annual Business Show.”
Following his speech, Michael spent time speaking to each of the 32 businesses with a stall at the show and meeting a number of local apprentices.
