Warrington third in North West business “league table”

0

WARRINGTON has been ranked 18th in a “league table” of the UK’s top towns and cities for business.
Only Manchester – 1st – and Liverpool 10th – were above the town in the North West.
The list has been drawn up by business publication Management Today.
The UK’s 63 biggest towns and cities – excluding London – were assessed on metrics including productivity, the depth of the talent pool, the strength of innovation, the scale of the private sector ecosystem and the rate of growth.
These results were collated and carefully weighted to produce a shortlist of 21, which was then ranked by a panel of expert judges with reference to the data and submissions from the cities themselves.
After a robust deliberation – the results were far from unanimous – the judges agreed the final ranking:
No other town or city in the region figured in the top 21.
Major cities Belfast, Sheffield, Oxford and Peterborough all failed to make the shortlist.
Adam Gale, editor, Management Today, said: “London rightly has a world-class reputation, but that doesn’t mean the rest of the country should live in its shadow. There are great business hubs across the UK that deserve recognition.
“There was a lively discussion over the winner in particular, but Manchester deserves the top spot. What set it apart was the concerted effort of its employers and local authorities to make Manchester as successful in the 21st Century as it was in the 19th.”
