Last call for Commission
Published by Anne Marie Hughes on Sat 09 Jun 12 @ 22:10
Glasgow Chamber of Commerce members have until Friday March 18 to offer The Glasgow Economic Commission their views on the city's economy.
The Commission invites you to provide the evidence it needs to help renew Glasgow's economy and identify new trade and investment opportunities.
It will then report back in the spring and advise the city on the best ways to harness its strengths to drive forward future economic prosperity.
Members can contribute to the discussion by logging on to www.glasgoweconomicfacts.com and following the link to Glasgow Economic Commission.
The final deadline for feedback is 5pm on Friday March 18.
Here are the key questions being asked:
1 What are the key economic and business opportunities that Glasgow must grasp in the next five to ten years?
you give some evidence to back up your views?
o what assets and capabilities does the city, its businesses and institutions have to help the city achieve success?
o Is this a niche or large-scale opportunity for the city's economy?
2 What actions need to be taken to grasp these opportunities?
3 Are there specific barriers we should be aware of that might inhibit the realisation of these key opportunities?
4 What investments are needed - both private and public - to realise these opportunities and how they might be funded?
The Commission is managed by Glasgow Chamber of Commerce chief executive Stuart Patrick and made up of leading business, academic and economic experts from the private and public sectors.
