Reading is the largest town in the South-East and it has been a magnet for many international companies in recent years, attracted by the central location and the excellent business facilities available. As with much of the Thames Valley, the business landscape is dominated by the service industry in Reading, far from its manufacturing heritage of beer, biscuits and bulbs. It is also a retail hub and will remain so as development work to continues to improve Reading’s retail prospects.
Reading’s excellent transport links with London mean that doing business with the capital is easy. The Chamber believes that these links can be improved further and is actively lobbying government to ensure that the new Crossrail stretches as far as Reading, instead of stopping at Maidenhead. Reading Chamber of Commerce is the oldest in the Thames Valley Group, with a continued presence in Reading since 1903. The main policy concerns for Reading Chamber of Commerce’s members are transport, planning, crime and skills shortages.
