Council launches new local business guide and interactive online service to support businesses

Published: Friday, 9th March 2018

The City Council has launched its 2017-2019 Oxford Business Guide, which showcases the city’s economic strengths, growth opportunities, and range of services designed to support business.  

Produced in partnership with Burrows Communication, the guide is in hard copy and also in interactive digital format, and supports business with local regulatory functions, through to business networks and advice.

The accompanying ‘It’s Local’ Oxford online service provides an interactive listing of local businesses and organisations that provide services to business and consumers right across the city. All businesses are encouraged to sign up to ‘It’s Local Oxford, and add their free company profile.

See the Oxford Business Guide e-book.

‘It’s Local’ Oxford

Councillor Bob Price, Board Member for Economic Development and Regeneration said: “The City Council is working closely with our business community and partners and the Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership to create a positive environment that supports sustained economic growth. These new publications are designed to provide a valuable information resource that we hope will help to stimulate local business to business trade, and encourage local procurement by consumers and suppliers. We also want to continue to attract new investors to Oxford.”
