Home - : London Development Agency
London is a city of contrasts - it has the UK's highest productivity rate, the world's 4th largest economy and a gross value added of over £160 billion a year. Its global transport links are second to none, the skills and diversity of its people is world class, and the educational institutions in the city are world class.
However, London also faces challenges; population expansion; rising costs; housing shortages; insufficient and outdated transport infrastructure; the highest child poverty rate in the country.
These are the challenges we at the London Development Agency must tackle head-on. As the Mayor's agency responsible for driving London's sustainable economic growth - it's our job to ensure that London remains a global success story - in the next year, the next decade and in the next century. We work to deliver the Mayor's vision for London to be a sustainable world city with strong, long-term economic growth, social inclusion and active environmental improvement.
