Report published on 12 April 2010 by Centre for Cities

Glasgow has been connected to global trade for hundreds of years, but the growth industries of the future look very different from the traditional ones. The banks of the River Clyde have been transformed from a centre for ship building to a hub for the creative industries – and the shipping routes of the industrial revolution have evolved into the information super-highway of the digital revolution.

Centre for Cities has been commissioned to produce these by the Talent and Enterprise Taskforce (a DCSF/ BIS initiative).

FutureStory booklets have also been published on SouthamptonBristolNewcastle & the North East and Manchester.
