InvestFife Team Showcase Fife's Investment Opportunities at UKREiiF Conference in Leeds

Tuesday 28 May 2024

Last week, a delegation from Fife Council's Economic Development team, Invest Fife, attended the UK Real Estate Investment & Infrastructure Forum (UKREiiF) in Leeds to showcase Fife’s top investment opportunities, as part of Scottish Cities Alliance. UKREiiF is a pivotal event that brings together over 12,000 delegates, fostering connections among people, places, and businesses to accelerate sustainable, inclusive, and transformational investments. 

The forum provided an excellent platform for highlighting the transformative projects propelling economic growth and innovation in Fife, particularly in key areas such as the Forth Green Freeport Development and the new Levenmouth Rail Link, showcasing the benefits this brings to the rest of Fife. Strategically located in the heart of Scotland, Fife offers abundant investment opportunities for businesses aiming to establish or expand their presence. Dunfermline, Fife's bustling city, features a thriving business community and excellent connectivity, making it an ideal investment location. The Forth Green Freeport, one of the two Scottish designated freeports, provides unique incentives and opportunities for businesses engaged in international trade and investment. Additionally, the Arrol Gibb Innovation Campus (as part of Forth Green Freeport designation) is transforming large-scale manufacturing capabilities through innovation and learning, offering state-of-the-art facilities and access to cutting-edge research and development resources.

Pamela Stevenson, Service Manager Economic Development at Fife Council, commented, "Participating in the UKREiiF Conference provided us with an invaluable platform to showcase Fife's investment potential to a diverse audience of investors and industry experts. Fife offers a compelling proposition for businesses seeking a strategic location, skilled workforce, and supportive business environment. We are dedicated to providing tailored support and assistance to businesses looking to invest or grow in our region."
