Milton Keynes will have one of the the fastest growing economies of all Britain’s cities in 2018, as the Oxford-MK-Cambridge corridor north of London continues to attract strong investment, reports The Telegraph.
MK’s gross value added – a measure of economic output – will grow by 2pc in 2018, according to a study from Irwin Mitchell and the Centre for Economics and Business Research. That is almost twice as fast as Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham.
“The Cambridge-Milton Keynes-Oxford arc is seen to have the potential to be the UK’s Silicon Valley and this latest report highlights its economic strength,” said Victoria Brackett at Irwin Mitchell.
Milton Keynes is also “a front-runner in the UK for technology” and is successfully attracting start-ups, the report said.
