Welcome to UK Trade & Investment's dedicated pages for companies who wish to find out more about the benefits of investing in the UK.

The UK is the most favoured inward investment location in Europe, attracting around 40 per cent of Japanese, US and Asian investment into the EU. The reasons for its popularity are many as it has a great deal to offer overseas companies.

The UK has 28 million skilled and adaptable workers and high standards of education with a strong emphasis on vocational education and training. Labour market regulations in the UK, including working hours, are among the most flexible in Europe, and staffing costs are highly competitive. The UK has a strong science and technology base, with world class design, research and development disciplines. Many UK universities and scientific institutes are taking part in collaborative research projects with businesses.
