1London 2012 – Delivering the economic legacy
I am so proud of what we achieved with London 2012last summer. For me, it was not just the medals broughthome for Team GB that made it special, or the amazingatmosphere in the Olympic Park; but the sense thatBritain could put on the most spectacular, friendlyGames in history – and do it in style. We showed theworld that Britain can deliver, from the incrediblevenues built on time and on budget, to the wholevolunteering and professional effort around the Games.
It was an incredible summer, but for everyone involved in the run-up to London2012, it was always meant to be more than that. Our challenge was to build onthis once-in-a-generation event with a lasting legacy – one that would inspire andbenefit not just the generation who cheered on the Games but the next one too.This report shows that we are off to a good start. A year on we have generated£9.9 billion of economic benefit from Olympic-related activities, and investmentinto the UK has already created over 31,000 new jobs.While this progress is encouraging, I want us to do more to build on the Olympiclegacy, to keep on reminding the world what we proved last summer: that if youwant the best, if you want professionalism, if you want jobs done on time and onbudget: then think British.This is one of the most creative, dynamic nations on earth, and we need to keepbanging the drum for Britain and British business in the years ahead. I would liketo congratulate UK Trade & Investment for their work on the 2012 legacy so far –and encourage them to keep up the good work.
