DED lines-up at UK business festival

Delegation travels to Liverpool

The Department of Economic Development is promoting the Island's allure as a place to do business at a major enterprise event.

The International Festival of Business (IFB) in Liverpool kicked off on Monday (13 June) and will run for three weeks.

Clean Tech, Maritime, Financial Services and e-Business sectors make up the DED's offering for this year - with speakers and political members hosting various events across the festival programme.

It's hoped that the event will prove a chance to boost links with UK and international investors - as well as giving a wider platform to initiatives such as the £50 million Enterprise Development Scheme.
