In 2019 we launched an ambitious GCR Tourism Strategy 2019 and in June 2017 we launched our GCR Skills Investment Plan.

In December 2021, we launched a new Regional Economic Strategy 2021, followed in 2022 by our Action Plan.

In February 2022 the Glasgow City Region Cabinet agreed to take a regional approach to the development and delivery of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund investment, part of the UK Government’s Levelling Up plans, and in August 2022 we finalised our UK Shared Prosperity Fund Investment Plan.

We produce performance reports on our City Deal progress annually:
