Business Durham and Durham County Council are this week attending UKREiiF, a national exhibition designed to showcase the scale of development progress across the UK and profile future investment opportunities to investors, developers and occupiers from around the globe.
With £2 billion of investment, planned or underway, and an ambitious ten-year economic strategy, the council are keen to make the point that Durham makes an ideal location for investment and development.
A hotbed of innovation, the county has seen its hi-tech sector go from strength-to-strength, along with growth in the up-and coming UK space sector.
With a top 100 university on the doorstep, and four others in the region, it has one of the largest pools of talent anywhere in the UK.
Key to success is the quality of Durham’s strategic business sites, which provide the facilities and the environment to allow companies to grow and flourish, along with easy access to world-wide markets through excellent connectivity by road, rail, air and sea.
