    The event will be a great opportunity to meet http://www.ciogrowthhub.comlikeminded businesses and skills providers, including Job Centre Plus, and the new Skills Access Hub team as part of www.ciogrowthhub.com

    Whilst Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly are leading on the inclusive growth agenda, we know we can only tackle these long term issues affecting growth in our region by working in collaboration.
