Giving the opening address to business and local authority leaders this morning at the annual Meet the Buyers gathering in Crawley’s Arora Hotel, local MP, Henry Smith, said:
“Our area is about excellent connectivity, both commercially and logistically, which is a great asset to our local and regional economy.
“In the last week we have seen the announcement of 950 new jobs in Crawley and that is a testament to what a great place to it is to base and do business.
“I congratulate Gatwick Airport, Crawley Council and Gatwick Diamond for sponsoring an event which generates millions of pounds in new trade by connecting buyers with suppliers.”
