THE NEC has won a new contract in the technology market and for the first time will be hosting an exhibition for the aerial industry.

THE NEC has won a new contract in the technology market and for the first time will be hosting an exhibition for the aerial industry.

The NEC was chosen because it has a great product offering, central location, first class infrastructure and public transport links and the new contract win will help create new jobs.

Another Solihull company, JaguarLandRover has announced an increase in sales in almost every market with November figures rising by 15 per cent in the UK.

The company says the Jaguar XF is starting to gain traction in the marketplace and the Range Rover Sport and Evoque continue successfully and will help to create new jobs - jobs which the borough desperately needs. The latest unemployment figures show a slight fall of 1,000 to 236,000 people out of work in the West Midlands.

Businesses need confidence to employ people and Solihull Chamber of Commerce is urging the Government to ease employment regulations and to create conditions which will encourage more companies to create jobs for local people.
