What Does The World’s Fourth Best Mayor Have To Say About Her City?
What Does The World’s Fourth Best Mayor Have To Say About Her City?

Not often do we, as investors, get the chance to meet someone so influential that they can change the economic outlook of a region just by thinking outside the box. Many people think out of the box, but only a few have the will and the influence to make these thoughts realities. 

Last month, we had the privilege of sharing the REIN™ stage with the World’s Fourth Best Mayor – Mayor of Surrey Dianne Watts. Mayor Watts is someone who has influenced how cities are run across Canada, as well as influenced many cities around the world. With her creativity and drive to turn talk into action, Surrey is positioned to be one of the best performers for investment in the next 5 years – a result of her careful planning.

As the city’s first female mayor, Dianne has been given much of the credit for transforming the city’s core from a decrepit, drug-fuelled neighbourhood to a thriving area with an extremely positive outlook. Surrey is now “open for business”.

One of the most interesting facts that Mayor Watts revealed during her presentation was how committed she is to supporting new businesses in this up-and-coming municipality. The cost for a business license in Surrey? A dollar! Outstanding isn’t it? These are the kind of initiatives Mayor Watts has put in place to drive her city to the very top.

To give even more insight into this great mayor and the City of Surrey, I’d like to present you with Mayor Dianne Watts’ presentation from the January BC REIN™ Implementation Workshop. Grab a pen and paper to take notes, get comfortable, and enjoy this key audio presentation.
