'Why I'm backing Plymouth's City of Culture bid' - Steve Whiteway
Plymouth is bidding to be named UK City of Culture 2017. We are asking the people of the city to speak up to support the move. Today business leader Steve Whiteway lends his support to the campaign.
Plymouth the Ocean City and what a place to be! There are the knockers and the doers and I hope I am counted in the latter. We have probably one of the best networking scenes of any UK city, not to mention venues.
Take for example the National Marine Aquarium, whose presence we are blessed with, not only the head office of UK aquaria but also a great enhancement to the visitor experience as well as a vital barometer for the health of our coasts, jointly working with Plymouth University, the MBA and PML.Couple that with a vibrant Plymouth Chamber of Commerce in its 200th year, a new business supplement launch from our local paper, the great support of the educational establishments such as City College and their sustainability team, Plymouth's renewal and commitment of its Fairtrade status, and a forward thinking council and the key people are already in situ.
We now have the Food Plymouth Expo later this month at the Guildhall which sees local suppliers working towards a green economy which keeps financial circulation local and encourages green supply chains, lower carbon and opportunities for synergy marketing.

We have never been better prepared to embrace this challenge and the business talent and guidance in the city, is, I believe, unrivalled.
