19th State of the City Economy Conference

28th November 2016

Glasgow is the fastest growing major city economy in the UK and the aim is to make Glasgow the most productive major city economy in the UK.

At the recent annual City Economy Conference, city leaders outlined Glasgow’s commitment to eight key sectors: digital technology; finance and business services; creative industries; low carbon; health and life sciences; engineering, design and advanced manufacturing; tourism and higher/further education.

With expertise across the key sectors identified by Glasgow City Council, the Morisons Business Team can provide commercial and tailored advice to any business, whether they are a new startup or an established business.

Glasgow’s new high-growth innovation hub at the Tontine Building at Glasgow Cross was highlighted at the Conference and described as the heart of the City Centre Innovation District along with the Technology and Innovation Centre and the Inovo Building.   Glasgow City Council Leader Frank McAveety confirmed that the Tontine Building will support 153 companies over the next five years and the city will integrate economic development activity with all organisations working in partnership towards a common objective of increasing productivity.

The Glasgow Economic Strategy 2016-2023 recognises that SMEs are the lifeblood of the Glasgow economy.  The Morisons Business Team agrees and works regularly with SMEs across Scotland to help their businesses grow and develop.  Our team regularly advises on areas such as raising finance or investment; ownership and succession; joint ventures and partnerships and mergers and acquisitions; employment and HR issues; and licensing and manufacturing.
