Economic Strategy

What is it?

The aim of this strategy is to make Glasgow the most productive major city economy in the UK.

We are the fastest growing major city economy in the UK with a diverse business and industry base and a highly skilled population. We are the centre of the only metropolitan area in Scotland.

Our new economic strategy seeks to build upon this progress. It is responsive to the specific challenges that modern day Glasgow faces, but retains the same sense of ambition which underpinned the growth of recent years.

Glasgow's Economic Strategy was refreshed in late 2019 and presented at the State of the City Economy Conference in January 2020. Please find the refreshed document below:
