We are showing our support for the World Trade Centre’s ambitions to develop a thriving regional economy by becoming its 10th official business partner.
With the World Trade Centre’s key focus areas including digital gaming and entertainment, in particular the Platform initiative, KCOM’s managing director, Gary Young, said that this agenda fitted with the company’s strategy.
“Our multi-million pound investment in superfast fibre optic technology will be enhanced by the joint approach to promoting the region’s digital potential and we want to work with all the different private and public sector entities to keep driving this forward,” he said.
“KCOM’s operations are wholly focused on this region, so we have a real stake in its success and want to be at the forefront of helping the local economy to achieve general growth. The World Trade Centre provides the vehicle for the kind of collaboration that will help achieve this, so we very much want to be part of it.”
Lindsay West, a World Trade Centre director, said that securing KCOM‘s backing was a significant step.
“KCOM is very well known, and it’s good that such a high profile company has decided to join us. They are forward thinking and demonstrating a strong belief in the region’s future. They intend to do their best to help us make it happen.”
