City leaders, decision-makers and young entrepreneurs are set to gather in Dundee next week for the city’s seventh annual economic summit.

More than 200 people with a stake in the economic wellbeing of Dundee and the wider area will be at the Gardyne Theatre next Wednesday.

Focussing on “delivering regional economic growth”, businesses, academics and the public sector will be sharing progress and plans on infrastructure and opportunities for the future with an audience from the city and beyond.

Organised by the Dundee Partnership, the summit will provide an update on some of the major economic projects and transformations taking place in the city including the Tay Cities Deal bid, the evolution and potential impact of the V&A and a celebration of the Year of Young People.

It will consider how Dundee and the wider Tay Cities Region are preparing to deliver prosperity and growth and the plans being developed.
