City on track for targets

Have your say

The Capital remains on track to achieve four out of its five key economic targets.

New figures show the city has attracted £450.4 million of new investment since 2009, while it has increased the “gross value added” of Edinburgh businesses by 10 per cent.

Visitor spend has increased by 17.7 per cent while 5719 people with “significant barriers” to employment have been helped into work.

The only target behind schedule is plans to support £100m of new commercial investment by 2012. So far, only £59.4m has been supported.
