BBC Radio Current Affairs Interview

Kerry Sian Ballard - Wednesday, July 20, 2011
Today we were very pleased to receive Ian Muir-Cochrane & Gerry Northam from the BBC Radio Current Affairs team, based in Manchester.

Ian Muir-Cochrane a Producer for BBC Radio 4 and Gerry Northam a BBC Journalist also working for the BBC Radio Current Affairs team, needed to interview business owners from the SME sector in Wales, regarding the UK Government's plan of action to introduce up to twenty one
Enterprise Zones and Enterprise Partnerships across England, but none in Wales and the effect this is likely to have on Welsh business & the wider economy in Wales.

Our Managing Director Kerry Ballard was kindly offered the opportunity to speak with Ian and Gerry about her thoughts on Enterprise Zones and Enterprise Partnership development within Wales. Kerry gave Ian & Gerry a tour of our 6000 Sq Ft premises and the film and photographic film studios and our design studio, where we handle all of our eCommerce development work and Online Business System development projects. Kerry explained about our business and our international business ambitions and local & international job creation objectives.

In relation to Enterprise Zones & Partnerships in Wales, Dezines Internet Solutions Limited believes very strongly that this type of strategic planning is essential if Welsh Government want companies & entrepreneurs to remain competitive with those in England, that are or will be located in an Enterprise Zone. We are currently disadvantaged to companies locating in Bristol's Enterprise Zone & with increasing YOY costs associated with the River Severn crossings etc, matters are already against us, so we feel the sooner Welsh Government set up Enterprise Zones in Wales, the better.

The interview and current affairs programme is due to be played on
BBC Radio 4 on the 9th August 2011 at 8pm in the 'File on 4' programme. 

A prospectus which gives more information to local Enterprise Partnerships, Local Authorities and partners about the UK Government's Enterprise Zone programme has been published at:

Here is a link to open a PDF document from UK Central Government, mapping out the current Enterprise Zones & Enterprise Partnerships in England:

Many thanks to both Ian & Gerry for their time, it was very much appreciated.
