London businesses look forward to 2012 Olympics


A recent study has revealed that around three-quarters of businesses that own London office space feel that the upcoming Olympic games will show the city in a good light.

Carried out jointly between the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) and KPMG, the London Business Survey also found that more than 60 per cent of respondents felt that the public transport options available in the capital would improve as a result of the city holding the games.

The majority of respondents also felt that the 2012 Olympics will provide London with a benefits on an international level.

CBI’s London region director, Sara Parker, commented on the results of the survey.

Speaking to the London Evening Standard, she said: “It’s good news that the majority of the capital’s companies are now thinking about planning for the Games, but there is still more work to be done over the coming months to make sure transport, staffing and security issues are ironed out.”
