Braintree District Council and Essex Chambers to hold Witham Open Business Forum

Following the success of the Braintree Open Business Forum, Braintree District Council and Essex Chambers are pleased to announce a second Open Business Forum event, aimed at businesses located in and around Witham.

Taking place on Friday February 5th 2016 it will feature Minister of State for Employment, The Rt Hon Priti Patel MP
along with Braintree District Councillor Tom Cunningham, Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Andrew Harrison, Managing Director of London Stansted Airport who between them will be giving updates on what is happening in Witham and the wider Essex economy. 

Speaking about the forum, Denise Rossiter, Chief Executive of Essex Chambers of Commerce said: “We were delighted that following on from the first business forum Braintree District Council were keen to work with us to deliver an event for businesses in and around Witham.”

“It is a great pleasure to have Witham’s MP Priti Patel in attendance as she is a good friend to businesses across the county along with Andrew Harrison the MD of London Stansted Airport who will be speaking about their plans for the future and what they mean for local businesses.” 

Councillor Tom Cunningham, Cabinet Member for Economic Development, added: “Witham is a great place to do business especially because it is set in a great location with great links to Colchester and London and beyond. We’ve already seen businesses moving to the district and we want to do more to encourage that further. It is an exciting time for Witham as we are working on improvements to the town centre, we’re improving the availability of superfast broadband and we are working with partners to offer business support. I‘m looking forward to meeting Witham business people to hear what additional support we can give.”
