Glasgow is the powerhouse of the Scottish economy – the cultural, sporting and academic heart of Scotland and one of Europe’s most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities.

Scotland’s largest city and only metropolitan region generated £43 billion GVA in 2016. It is a diverse and resilient economy; more than 54,000 companies (28% of Scottish companies) make their home in the Glasgow city region, supporting 844,000 jobs (34% of the Scottish total).

Glasgow is Scotland’s number one city for foreign direct investment and has been named one of Europe’s top ten large cites of the future. Noted for business friendliness and connectivity, Glasgow is fDi Magazine’s runner up for FDI strategy (2018/19).

Glasgow has everything your business needs to succeed: strong links throughout the UK and Europe, a competitive advantage with multi-sectoral expertise, excellent infrastructure and digital connectivity, a robust pipeline of talent and accommodation to suit any need.

Your business is here.
