The Glasgow Economic Leadership was established in 2011 to provide independent leadership and direction to economic development activity in Glasgow and to champion the implementation of the recommendations made by the Glasgow Economic Commission. The Group, chaired by Professor Sir Jim McDonald acts as a senior advisory body to the City Council but also to national bodies like Scottish Enterprise and Skills Development Scotland, which have investments to make in the growth of the city of Glasgow.

Glasgow works best when it works in partnership and the Glasgow Economic Leadership is the triple helix of the private sector, academic institutions and the public sector working together to lead the City’s economic development.
