After the meeting, Stuart McMillan MSP said:
“I met the principal of West College Scotland and we discussed in more detail the proposed Marine Tourism BID for Inverclyde and how the college could play a major part in progressing this.
“I am delighted that the Principal is supportive of the suggestion and is keen to be kept up to date with developments and is also keen to take part in any meetings about the Marine Tourism BID.
“Inverclyde is the obvious choice to be Scotland’s home for Marine Tourism and using the BID process would be one way of unlocking our potential and creating more training, jobs and extra income for Inverclyde.
“Inverclyde has a huge amount going for it and with a focus on Marine Tourism, we could reap the rewards for the wider economy.”
