Thanks for your input - Ed.

This is potentially a great step forward in ensuring that there is across the board and real time awareness on the part of the relevant decision makers of  the challenges facing our Market and as a result the possibility of developing some concrete strategies around meeting and overcoming at least some of these challenges.
Having said that, the disappointment / frustration / anger in seeing that yet once again the non food area of the Market, who form between 60-70% of businesses at the Market, have no seat at that table is utterly exasperating."
Thanks for your comments - Ed.
