The UK is one of the leading business locations in the world and is well established as one of the world’s major trading nations. According to the Centre for Business and Economic Research (World Economic League Table 2013), the UK is the sixth largest economy in the world. With a population of 63.2 million, the UK is a major market in its own right. The UK is also the gateway to the European Market with its 28 member states and over 500 million consumers. Its proximity to Europe makes it a natural choice to locate for investors coming from outside the EU, and it is home to London, the world’s leading financial centre.

UNCTAD’s World Investment Report 2013 confirms the UK’s strong position as a top global destination for foreign direct investment (FDI), and demonstrates the confidence and trust that foreign investors have in the UK business environment. A rich and diverse market with world-class industries including Life Science, ICT, Creative, Financial and Professional Business Services, Aerospace and Automotive engineering, the UK offers an attractive location for businesses with easy access to customers, product innovators, suppliers and partners.
