FOREIGN investment totalling £9.7 billion will see ‘at least’ 30,000 new jobs created across Britain, the UK Government has announced.
Westminster said that the package of 18 deals will support growth in vital sectors such as wind and hydrogen energy, sustainable homes, and carbon capture and storage.
It comes as the department for international trade launches a new investment atlas, which acts as an online platform designed to help international investors identify and execute high priority investment opportunities in Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The atlas will highlight 53 strategic investment opportunities across the UK, each with a strong sustainability element aligned with the key themes set out in the prime minister’s 10-point plan.
New projects being showcased include offshore wind substructures in Scotland and manufacturing ports in Teesside and Humber, sustainable food systems delivery in Telford and net zero transport in Coventry.
