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 nearly 600,000, Glasgow contributes approximately 18 billion GBP in GVA to the Scottish economy annually.  Almost 17,000 companies make their home in Glasgow; together they generate a turnover of 31,101 million GBP each year.

Since 2011, Glasgow has attracted more than six billion GBP 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 strategic focus areas for Glasgow: Low Carbon industries, Life Sciences, Engineering, Design & Manufacturing, Financial & Business Services, Tourism & Events, Higher & Further Education, Creative Industries and Retail.
