A roundtable event was held at Romford Town Hall (8 Feb 2023), hosted by the London and Havering Chambers of Commerce. The event brought together business leaders and educators to discuss the Local Skills Improvement Plan, aimed at aligning training programs with Havering's economic needs.
The event was attended by the Member of Parliament (M.P.) for Romford, who addressed the gathering and spoke about the importance of creating stronger links between Havering and Essex to reduce red tape and regulation, while providing a more efficient system to promote business and enterprise in the area.
"The current regulatory landscape can sometimes be a barrier to business growth," the M.P. stated. "We must work to reduce red tape and unnecessary regulations to create a more efficient and flexible system that better serves the needs of our local businesses and entrepreneurs."
The roundtable event provided a crucial platform for discussing the Local Skills Improvement Plan and exploring ways to enhance the skills development ecosystem in Havering. The M.P.'s participation and insights helped bring a broader perspective to the discussion and emphasised the importance of collaborating across regional boundaries to achieve the best outcomes for the local economy.
The London and Havering Chambers of Commerce are committed to supporting the local economy and promoting business and enterprise in Havering. The successful roundtable event is just one example of their ongoing efforts to improve the skills development landscape in the area.
