James says: “It’s an honour to be asked to attend this event with Cornwall Trade and Investments. USS has grown exponentially due to the support of CTI, and I hope to help fly the flag for Cornwall and garner interest from companies abroad looking to expand in the region. I want to show that Cornwall’s marine innovation industry is the best in the world.”

He can provide information on jobs, expected turnover and contracts won, to show the value offered from investing in the region.”
