Chloe Smith, MP for Norwich North, is tonight helping to support businesses from Norwich to network and grow, by promoting stronger links with the City of London. The event, hosted by Chloe at the House of Commons and sponsored by constituency business Computer Service Centre, based in Thorpe St Andrew, Norwich North, focusses on how new technology can empower small and medium sized enterprises across the UK to support businesses in London’s Square Mile.


Commenting on the event, Chloe said:


“The City of London is a global powerhouse, but there’s no reason why that success has to be limited to the capital. City firms now regularly outsource strategically in pursuit of top tech talent, so the development of the A11 Tech Corridor is the perfect opportunity for our region to capitalise on this.


“Norwich is now officially a ‘Tech City’, which recognises the digital employment of over 14,000 talented people.  £3 million is being invested in our growing creative digital industries, including £1.5 million for the Digital Centre for Innovation at Norwich University of the Arts.


“Businesses large and small need a digital strategy to sustain success, and as a Norwich MP I will continue to encourage top firms throughout East Anglia, Britain and the world to make use of the skills, imagination and initiative of our local entrepreneurs.”
