John Dugmore, chief executive of Suffolk Chamber of Commerce, outlines why the prospect of a new power station at Sizewell is good for the county’s business community.
Earlier this month, I attended a really interesting event at Westminster at which EDF Energy unveiled a report into the positive boost to the Somerset economy arising out of the building of Hinkley Point C power station.
We learnt both that £465m-worth of contracts had been awarded to firms in the region and that there had also been an impressive uptick in jobs going to local people.
Why am I so excited about Somerset? Because that county’s present could be Suffolk’s future.
