Up to 30,000 temporary jobs could be created and a million more people will visit the South East if London wins the 2012 Olympic bid, it has been claimed. Research was carried out by a co-ordinating group set up by Kent County Council (KCC) to look at the potential impact of the games.
The winning city is set to be announced in Singapore on Wednesday.
KCC leader Sir Sandy Bruce-Lockhart said the county was awaiting news of the winner "with great excitement".
Eurostar links from north Kent to London were proposed for 2007 and areas such as Kent Thameside and Ashford that would provide key transport links into London were set for regeneration, the council said.
The possible advantages to the county are being researched and developed by the Kent Olympics Co-ordinating Group.
Kent County Council said: "According to the group, 30,000 temporary jobs will be available to local people as well as cash boosts from the increase in tourists to the county.
"It has been predicted that the Games would bring a million more visitors into the county, helping to promote local landmarks, facilities and businesses." BBC News
