Eastbourne and Willingdon MP Caroline Ansell has become an ambassador for Locate East Sussex - an organisation promoting business expansion and investment in the county.
Locate works with councils and other groups to ensure businesses can thrive and invest and it uses ambassadors to highlight the array of opportunities in the county for companies.
Caroline was chosen because she is a “passionate advocate for the county” and she will now use her position to push for more companies to set up business in East Sussex.
“Our county, and Eastbourne in particular, is a great place to do business and I intend to use this role to make sure that people I meet who might be interested in investing get to know straight away about the wonderful opportunities there are in the county,” said Caroline.
“Locate is doing a great job working with councils to make this happen. This is a very competitive world and East Sussex needs to get its message out there that it is open for new businesses.”
