I am delighted to be able to report the continued vibrant health of the Thames Valley Berkshire economy and its ongoing capacity to attract strong levels of FDI.
As in previous years, our Business in Berkshire 2018 report provides a comprehensive evidence base for all those involved in supporting local businesses.
Throughout, we place an emphasis on growth. When more and more firms grow, more and more rapidly, sustained economic (and social) prosperity is more likely. With that in mind I would particularly recommend the section on high growth and scale-up businesses, the support of whom forms a key part of our strategic growth plan for Berkshire.
I hope that this report helps inform a wide range of local business support and economic development activities as we collectively continue to help Berkshire-based businesses thrive.
