Reaction to qualification for EU investment post 2006

Carleen Kelemen, Director of the Objective One Partnership, said: "This is great news for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. The success of the Objective One Programme, which runs until December 31 2006, is already in evidence in our people, our new university provision, in buildings, in infrastructure and in the 'buzz' that is coming from the region.

"With this next round of investment the people of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly have the opportunity to build on this success and continue the journey towards a long term prosperous future. Objective One has begun the work by refettling the structure of our economy. A further investment programme presents a perfect chance to continue strengthening the path towards a more knowledge-based economy nurturing the region's key economic assets."

Andrew Mitchell, Cornwall County Council Economy Portfolio Holder, said: "Confirmation of this new programme means that we can get on with the work we need to do for Cornwall. The successes of the Objective One Programme together with the strategy being developed by the Cornwall Economic Forum give us the direction to continue our journey to greater prosperity."
