The traditional heavy industries such as ship building and manufacturing have given way to industries more suited to the 21st century but Glasgow remains the powerhouse not just of Scotland but of the UK economy. A quarter of Scotland's largest businesses are to be found in Glasgow but there are countless small and medium-sized enterprises to be found here as well. Glasgow is now predominantly a city of service industries and tourism also provides many jobs. And watch out for jobs in the number of business parks that have sprung up around the city.
Between St Vincent Street and the River Clyde is the financial district of Glasgow.
