The Black Country LEP has been recognised as one of the top 5 cost-effective LEPs by the fDi Magazines European Cities and Regions of the Future ranking 2016/17. The team were presented with a certificate marking their success on 15 March at MIPIM 2016.

The ranking identifies the Black Country as a cost effective UK location to do business from which contributes to the Black Country’s reputation as a first-class investment destination.

Renowned for its ability to drive innovation as well as being a cost-effective location, the Black Country is already home to global giants including Jaguar Land Rover, Porsche and Moog ensuring that products made in the Black Country are sold around the world.

Tom Westley, Black Country LEP lead for the Enterprise Zone said:

“We are delighted to have ranked so highly by fDi Magazine as a cost-effective location for businesses looking to invest in the UK. Global businesses are already making the Black Country their base and with world-class engineering and manufacturing skills and competitive operating costs, the Black Country makes perfect business sense.”

fDi’s European Cities and Regions of the Future 2016/17 ranking provides an invaluable benchmark for assessing the continent’s investment landscape. The full report can be found on fdiintelligence.com.
