Powerhouse of the Scottish economy and successful host of the 2014 Commonwealth Games. Glasgow is the cultural, sporting and academic heart of Scotland and one of Europe’s most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities.
Scotland’s largest city, with a population of over 600,000, Glasgow contributes approximately £19.62bn GVA to the Scottish economy annually. Almost 19,000 companies make their home in Glasgow; together they generate an annual turnover of just under £38bn.
Since 2011, Glasgow has attracted more than £11 billion in capital investment within its support infrastructure, including housing, retail, health, education, hotels and offices. Capital investment and improvement has given Glasgow improved access to internal and external markets and has provided a springboard for inward and foreign investment to the city. Several economic growth sectors are key strategic focus areas for Glasgow: Digital Technology, Financial and Business Services, Creative Industries, Low Carbon, Health and Life Sciences, Engineering, Design & Manufacturing, Tourism & Events and Higher & Further Education.
Glasgow is rapidly becoming a smart city of the future, positioning itself at the forefront of technology integration and application.
