How to invest in Thames Gateway

Government's investment in the Thames Gateway's infrastructure, workforce skills and communities has created an economic vibrancy that has opened up unique investment opportunities for local, national and international businesses.

Attracting investment to the Thames Gateway is the responsibility of the three Regional Development Agencies (RDAs) of East of England, London and South East England. The role of the Invest Thames Gateway team is to support their efforts by co-ordinating a pan-regional proposition for the Gateway as a whole, whilst still encouraging the RDAs to develop their own unique selling points within their areas in the Gateway.

As well as links with the regional agencies, the team is also linked directly with the Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) (formerly the Department for Business Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR) and UK Trade Investment, the Government organisation that support companies in the UK doing business internationally and overseas enterprises seeking to set up or expand in the UK.

This strategic positioning allows the Invest Thames Gateway team to have access to the most up to date information about the overarching Thames Gateway Programme and wider the Government investment agenda, at the same time as having access to specific developments on in the Thames Gateway through specialists in the RDAs.

In 2009, international property consultants Jones Lang LaSalle and Invest Thames Gateway joined forces to produce a report Thames Gateway: Business Without Boundaries, specifically designed to give inward investors an effective overview of the investment opportunities across the whole of the Thames Gateway, and how to exploit them. The report can be downloaded from Invest Thames Gateway's website, using the link below.
