Bridging Scotland and the Northern Powerhouse

Berwick Town Council and UK Trade & Investment

Berwick Upon Tweed is the Northern limit of the Northern Powerhouse. It is strategically located to benefit from the growing economy of Scotland, especially the Borders and Edinburgh City Regions, as well as the inevitable growth that will arise in the North East of England.

This event is for local businesses - whether they are selling products or services - wishing to learn more about UK  government, Regional and EU support to assist them with development and growth. It is also for investors looking to establish new business opportunities that will exploit Berwick's strategic location as the Bridge between Scotland and The Northern Powerhouse.

Investors will benefit from our recent designation as an Enterprise Zone, and our outstanding transport links - which include the A1, the East Coast Line and our own Port.

This event is sponsored by UK Trade & Investment (UKTI).
