Commerce

Liverpool was built on global trade and commerce.

Historically the UK’s 'second city of empire', Liverpool has always been an international focal point for the world of business.

A naturally entrepreneurial place, Liverpool continues to ‘think big’ when it comes to business. But two things tend to link all Liverpool’s leading business sectors; innovation and creativity.

Simply put, Liverpool is a great place to do business. It’s Liverpool brings you a selection of the city’s most creative and innovative business stories.
