Glasgow has seen remarkable economic growth and development in recent years, but the greatest opportunities to transform the city's economy still lie ahead.  Our ambitious economic development strategy for the city "A Step Change for Glasgow", launched in 2006, established a route map for achieving our goals.  You can download this document and the accompanying action plan from this page.


In response to the global economic crisis an independent private sector led Glasgow Economic Commission was established in 2010 tasked with reviewing the city's Economic Strategy and Action Plan in the light of rapid and significant changes in world, UK and Scottish economic affairs.  The findings and recommendations of the Glasgow Economic Commission Final Report will shape a significant review of the Strategy and Action Plan and will be published later in 2012.
