Margaret Beckett, president of the Board of Trade, will launch today Enterprise Zone Internet, a new site aimed at helping UK businesses by collating useful information sites on the web. The site (www.enterprisezone. org.uk), to be launched at the Business Development Centre at the University of East London by Beckett and Minister for Industry Barbara Roche, has been developed by Microsoft, the Department of Trade and Industry and Business Links, a national network of local business advice centres which already has regional Internet sites providing business information. It will provide access to information, resources and expertise on marketing, business legislation, regulations and IT. "The site has been designed to give access to an accredited list of sites that will provide business information to help make the most of business," said a DTI spokesman. "Many businesses find it very time consuming to find the sites they need and then the information can be variable." "It allows business people to find sources of guidance and information," said Martin Cearns, development manager at the Business Development Centre where the launch is to take place. "It collates all the sources of information to form a one-stop shop for information. That's what the average business person wants." The University of East London's Business Development Centre's own site, Business Enterprise Exchange (www.bee. co.uk), will be one of the sites that can be accessed through the Enterprise Zone site from today. Development of the site will continue to build what the DTI claims will be "a key information centre for business on the web".
