Inward Investment Services
The Thames Valley has delivered another set of good inward investment results during the 2018-2019 financial year. Whilst overall investment numbers are down, compared with 2017/18 (consistent with national figures) there are some encouraging trend around the value of FDI and across a number of sectors, most notably Life Sciences & Healthcare and Software & Computer Services.

With proven expertise in helping to co-ordinate and deliver inward investment activity across the region, TVCC works alongside the global networks of the Department for International Trade and International Chamber of Commerce, as well as the region’s Local Enterprise Partnerships, Local Authorities and professional service providers.
In addition to promoting the Thames Valley as a leading international business location and investment destination of choice for foreign-owned companies (FOCs), it also provides a comprehensive ‘soft-landing support’ service for FOCs wishing to set up or expand in the region. This includes providing free introductions to academic institutions, solicitors, accountants and recruitment agencies. TVCC also has access to a wide range of property advisors and agents, including owners of some of the region’s large commercial estates, to enable new investors to find the most appropriate and suitable site for their needs.
