Is Merseyside a good place to start up in business?
Most definitely! Liverpool is the sixth largest city in the United Kingdom and has excellent road and rail connections, along with rapid trans-global sea routes and an international airport. Major regeneration projects and inward business investment have contributed to an upturn in the city’s economic profile in recent years. This has been fuelled by the city’s successful bid for European City of Culture 2008. Furthermore, Merseyside’s European Objective One status, and the Department of Trade and Industry Assisted Area status collectively provide a real boost to the number and level of financial assistance measures available in the region.
