Charlesfield Farms Ltd invited to SCDI Ministerial Roundtable Dinner at Gretna

Last night, Lorna Jackson, on behalf Charlesfield Farms Ltd, attended the SCDI (Scottish Council for Development and Industry) Ministerial roundtable dinner, with Mr Ivan McKee MSP, at Greens of Gretna. The Minister gave an overview of the three main areas of his portfolio. These are Trade, Implementation and Innovation. The conversations over dinner and after in a Q&A session with the Minister, were focused on lack of transport infrastructure and affordable housing in the South of Scotland. Also, how could the South of Scotland be promoted both internally to Scotland and externally to the wider world, as a place to do business. It is hoped the new South of Scotland Enterprise Agency will give a focus and strategic direction to support these areas.
