Kent is known as the garden of England, which suggests a strong bias towards agriculture but this is far from the truth, particularly in the north of the county. The main industries in the north-west of Kent historically have included: light engineering, construction, cement, paper making and aircraft construction, there are oil refinery facilities on the Isle of Grain and some steel production and brick-making activity in Mid and North Kent.
With the advent of the high speed rail links into London over half the population finds itself less than an hour commuting time from central London and there is a growing commuter belt that now includes both Ashford and Canterbury.
In the south and east; agriculture, tourism and education (particularly in Canterbury) complement each other as platforms for the rural and coastal economies and there is a small but growing influence of offshore wind based power generation. Regeneration projects are being carried out within the Thames Gateway by Kent Thameside Delivery Board, Medway Renaissance Partnership and Swale Forward. There is a continued emphasis in the transport sector within the county, significant investment has taken place in the Port of Dover, London Ashford Airport. Cross channel traffic remains an important commercial catalyst for the east coast. The Turner Contemporary in Margate, the New Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury and arts focused developments in Folkestone and Thanet have been part of the drive to stimulate the growth of creative industries.
