Industry working groups look to develop five sectors

Strategies are being developed and worked on to improve the Glasgow economy’s performance in five key sectors championed by the Glasgow Economic Leadership. The Glasgow Economic Leadership Board, supported by Glasgow Chamber, is working on how to help drive forward financial and business services; tourism and events; low-carbon industries; engineering, design and manufacture; and life sciences. There is also further work being done on higher and further education sectors, as well as the

creative industries, reflecting their contribution to the city’s economy. Industry-led working groups on

each of the sectors are looking at what can be done to develop them, meet the challenges they face and increase their contribution to the city’s economy. Stuart Patrick, Chief Executive of

Glasgow Chamber, said: “There is a lot of work going on behind the scenes in each of the sectoral groups. The groups are getting to grips with the very real issues and competitive pressures that each of the sectors are facing. “They will bring forward

programmes of what can be done by the sectors themselves, by the wider business community and by government at different levels to limit threats and seize on opportunities. “Glasgow Chamber will continue to

play its part in facilitating this work for the benefit of our members and the wider community.”

NEXT ISSUE... The work of each of the sectors will be covered in detail in Glasgow Business in the months ahead.
