The figures are based on information provided by companies at the time of announcement of the decision to invest.

There is no requirement to notify the Department of Trade and Industry and so the figures include only those projects where the Invest in Britain Bureau (IBB) and its regional partners (LFC) were involved or which have come to their notice.
