Glasgow City Council
Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland, with more than two million inhabitants living in the greater city area. Following a sharp decline in its role as a powerhouse of industry and transatlantic trade under the British Empire, Glasgow is now one of the fastest growing cities in the United Kingdom in economic terms. Growth sectors include low carbon industries, engineering, design & manufacturing, the life sciences, financial & business as well as tourism & events. However, in some areas Glasgow still faces severe social deprivation and has one of the lowest life expectancies of any city in the UK.
