I was delighted to seek support for the excellent Dundee 2023 bid for European Capital of Culture at PMQs on Wednesday.
I asked the Prime Minister:
"A successful bid by Dundee would create over 1,500 new jobs, boost the local economy by £128 million and add almost 5% to local GDP.
"I hope the Prime Minister can put her views on Europe to one side and support a transformative bid from one of the most vibrant and forward thinking cities in the UK."
I was also delighted to be at the wave off of our city's bid yesterday in the city square, which had a fantastic turnout!
This is a very exciting time for Dundee - our bid for European Capital of Culture 2023, the waterfront development as well as being voted one of Wall Street Journal's top 10 destinations to visit in 2018!
