The Economic Development Minister hopes a project that could create 1000 jobs in the south of the Island is ready to progress to the next phase.

Laurence Skelly confirmed in this week's sitting of the House of Keys that the Airport Technology Gateway Committee is ready to present its recommendations to the Environment and Infrastructure Committee after a year of planning.

The Government claims research shows a technology park near an airport creates a desirable gateway for investors, which could result in up to 1000 new jobs being created at Balthane and Ronaldsway.

The DED has concluded mapping and a feasibility study, and says there is over 400,000 square feet of land available to be developed.
