The West Midlands economy welcomes hundreds of businesses that are already competitive nationwide and overseas – could your company be next? In recent years, the West Midlands has seen its economy expand far quicker than the national average and is a leader in attracting foreign and direct investment.

London is just 80 minutes away by mainline rail, while Birmingham’s International Airport now flies direct to 49 countries worldwide. It’s also at the heart of High Speed 2 (HS2), Europe’s biggest transport infrastructure project, aiming to cut journey times between the West Midlands and London by more than 50%.
