With the arrival of HS2 and the recent announcement of the successful Commonwealth Games the next few years will continue to see Birmingham’s economy boom! The improved connectivity that will come from HS2 is set to see the region be a real focus area for inward investment over the next 10 years, and the Commonwealth Games will see a huge number of visitors coming to the City – with a massive opportunity to market the City during this period as a brilliant place to both live and work.
