What will your business look link in five years' time and what support will you need to get it there?

That is the theme of a Suffolk Chamber event planned for Lowestoft which will see business people helping to shape a new economic strategy for Norfolk and Suffolk.

A spokesman said: 'Now we need your input, so join us to share your ideas.

'You'll be able to hear about some of the evidence which has been gathered so far as well as taking part in lively discussions on a range of topics, from global trade to skills and productivity.'

The new economic strategy will cover the period up to 2036, with a nod to 2050 to reflect other strategies which are also currently being developed.

The free event will take place at the OrbisEnergy Centre in Wilde Street, Lowestoft on July 6 from 5pm. For more information or to book for the event visit www.suffolkchamber.co.uk .
