Welcome to the first Economy and Culture newsletter of 2018.  I hope you had a lovely festival season and that 2018 has started well.

2018 promises to be another exciting year in MK.  The latest Irwin Mitchell report forecasts MK to be the third fastest growing UK city in 2018 and our continued focus on engaging with our current businesses and supporting businesses to locate in MK will help to achieve this.  On the arts side, the draft Cultural Strategy 2018-2027 has been published and was the focus of a workshop held at the end of January, attracting almost 100 attendees.

To keep up to date on what's happening between newsletters, don't forget to follow us on social media: Invest MK Twitter and LinkedIn; Culture MK on Twitter and Facebook; and the library service on Twitter and Facebook.
