What is the Economic Development Office?

The City of London Corporation is dedicated to a vibrant and thriving City of London, supporting a diverse and sustainable London within a globally successful UK.

With strong partnerships with business and Government, the Economic Development Office (EDO) works to ensure the UK remains the best, and most innovative place globally for financial and professional services - in order to deliver growth across the economy. We work to provide the evidence base for informed policy, and we promote financial and professional services exports and investment around the world.

The City already brings prosperity to the rest of London and the UK. EDO works to maximise the City's impact especially by promoting inclusion, sustainable growth and trustworthiness in business, and by supporting social mobility, diversity, enterprise and skills

The office is headed up by Damian Nussbaum, Director of Economic Development.
