Postcard from Manchester, U.K.


Manchester is the second-largest city in the U.K. and has experienced quite a renaissance from its days as the U.K.’s first industrialized city.  The local economy still includes some manufacturing, but is increasingly driven by education, service and e-commerce businesses. As a result, there is a growing youthful population, blending the traditional and modern together.  Of course, the U.K. is one of the U.S.’s largest trading partners (the reverse is true, as well), and we’ve recently seen additional investment in the U.S., as British firms work to expand their markets here.

On October 28, I visited Manchester to meet with PrimeGlobal member firm Hurst and its clients, as well as a representative from U.K. Trade & Investments and the British American Business Council.

U.K. Trade & Investment (UKTI) helps U.K.-based companies succeed in the global economy. UKTI also helps foreign businesses evaluate U.K. investment and expansion opportunities. Through embassies, consulates and trade missions, UKTI has a dedicated U.S. team providing personalized assistance and tools (usually, for free).

If you’re interested in exploring opportunities for U.K. investment, please contact us for more information.  Cheers!
