As someone who has observed first-hand, the work of the Invest Glasgow team, their ability to promote Glasgow as a top business location is exemplar. The team are very approachable, knowledgeable and their commitment to attracting investment into our city means I am very confident involving them in early discussions with business occupiers, investors and developers, as our values are aligned to create economic, social, and environmental value and high-quality jobs in the city.
