Gerry Grimstone – 2020 Comments on Office for Investment

The comments made by Gerry Grimstone, the Minister for Investment, on 9 November 2020.

If we are to build back better from this pandemic, we need to refocus and re-double our efforts to attract foreign investment, which will increase productivity, economic growth across the country, boost our exports and better our research and development environment.

We must sharpen our priorities and transform our investment offer accordingly to meet the demands of a changing global economic outlook – whether that be in greener or increased digitally-led opportunities.

The Office for Investment will make it easier for international investors by bringing the very best of the UK directly to them.
