Improving the physical infrastructure of Glasgow city centre and regenerating the Clyde waterfront area have been listed as two priorities in the drive to create a world-class city.


 


Glasgow City Council leader Steven Purcell laid out his plans for the city’s future in a speech at the State of the Economy Conference. He said that the Scottish Executive has identified the Clyde regeneration as a vital component for continued growth. ‘This is a crucial period for our economic future,’ added Purcell. ‘Our ten-year strategy is a blueprint for success.’


 


Scottish Enterprise operations director Stuart Patrick said: ‘We want Glasgow to be seen not as a city going through a process of regeneration but one whose transformation from post-industrial to modern 21st century city is complete.’
