SINCE the demise of Scottish Enterprise Ayrshire, the Ayrshire Economic Forum and the Ayrshire Tourism Partnership, the newly formed Ayrshire Business Forum has been involved in several round the table discussions with a cross-section of pro-active business people from Ayrshire as they strive to ensure that the business and economic issues of the county are not lost.
The Forum has prioritised a number of areas for development to really put Ayrshire on the map, with action groups leading the way in developing an Ayrshire and Arran brand, establishing a new and effective Tourism Information Centre based at Prestwick Airport and supporting the recently formed Employment Task Force giving help and support during these troubled times.
William Mackie is managing partner at the Clydesdale Bank Financial Solutions Centre in Ayr and chairman of the Ayrshire Business Forum. He said “It is heartening to see Ayrshire businesses coming together under the umbrella of the Ayrshire Business Forum.
“It shows not only that this is a region passionate about business and economic issues, but also that it is a region willing to take ownership of the tasks in hand to help overcome difficulties and move forward to the next level.”
