“I left the 2008 Summit knowing that Surrey and its Board of Trade had found a winning formula. The topics and panelists were impressive, so I’m particularly pleased to be back this year as one of the Honourary Co-Chairs. Like the more than 600 participants who will come together in October, I’m looking forward to hearing Tony Blair’s perspective on today’s economic issues and the leadership that’s needed to move us forward.”

“Strong national economies start locally, reinforcing the importance and value of the Surrey Regional Economic Summit with its commitment to the tools and policies that encourage prosperity.
