Bigger population, massive benefits - COC president

The Island's economy is in danger unless we make moves to increase the population.

That's according to Chamber of Commerce President Micky Swindale, who hopes to bring 15,000 economically active people to the Isle of Man over the next ten years.

Speaking on Manx Radio's Sunday Opinion programme, she said the consequences of not doing so could be detrimental to the Island if action isn't taken now.
