Interest in Kent and Medway as business locations has held up reasonably well despite the recession.
Locate in kent claimed to have helped attract nearly 2,900 jobs and safeguard 1,600 that might otherwise have been lost last year. It achieved a record 76 projects and set similar targets for 2009/2010 despite the economic downturn.
Chief executive Paul Wookey said the agency would be "there or thereabouts" when the full figures are revealed. "If we fall short, it won't be for the want of trying. Some projects will naturally fall into a month or two later."
