THERE are still a few places remaining for Friday's seminar on localism in the Isle of Wight economy.
Two speakers from the New Economics Foundation will be addressing the audience at the Riverside Centre.
The meeting, organised by Isle of Wight MP Andrew Turner comes just a few weeks after the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne announced that the UK economy is returning to growth.
Mr Turner said: "At times our Island economy can seem fragile. If the UK sneezes then we catch the cold. But there are certainly things we can do to help ourselves.
"There are encouraging signs the UK economy is improving, and now is the right time to make a start."
The talk will begin with a speech from Mr Turner, giving his thoughts on the future.
Liz Cox, from the foundation, will then talk about local enterprises, while her colleague Tony Greenham will describe how to build a supportive financial infrastructure.
Following the talks, editor of the Isle of Wight County Press, Alan Marriott, will chair a discussion.
A buffet lunch will follow the debate.
Tickets can be booked in advance by contacting Mr Turner's office on 01983 530808 or email@example.com
