Isle of Man Government has confirmed that its two-day conference will take place as planned on 20th and 21st September.

Commenting on the Business Workshop Lunch event, Chamber CEO Rebecca George said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for members to hear more about the Government’s draft Economic Strategy, how businesses can ensure their future prosperity, and support the Island to achieve ambitious targets. The workshop will open with a short talk about the Economic Strategy followed by an open floor for questions which can be submitted via Slido and then, over lunch, we will be fostering moderated discussions to encourage debate around the plan. The Chief Minister, Treasury Minister, other Ministers and Senior Department for Enterprise officers will circulate between the tables and join in with the discussion.”   

Questions can be submitted in advance via this Slido link.

A spokesperson for Best Energy Solutions Ltd said: “The Island is navigating some big challenges and an ambitious economic strategy, opportunities for the business community are materialising. The Chamber of Commerce recognises this and offers a great support network where people and business can come together to share ideas, work through problems, find solutions and promote our strong and diverse local economy. With the rise in energy prices, and businesses switching on to their ESG responsibilities, the Chamber is working hard in this sector to link suppliers and clients so that the Island can meet its sustainability targets.”
