About Manchester

As the regional capital of the north west of England, Manchester is home to nearly thousands of people. It is mainly known as an industrial city but is undergoing a great process of change that is making it arguably one of the most lively and energetic cities in the UK. Between July 25 and August 4 2002, Manchester is to play host to the XVII Commonwealth Games. This promises to be an outstanding event for all involved, focusing much of the worlds' attention on the city and stimulating numerous benefits for Manchester's residents and businesses. One of the city's football clubs, Manchester City, is already set to inherit the brand new City of Manchester Stadium, which has been specially constructed for the games.

In the city can be found a whole host of magnificent museums and galleries including the Museum of Science and Industry and the Manchester Art Gallery that was recently reopened after a £35 million redevelopment that took 4 years to complete. The nightlife is second to none and the numerous pubs and clubs provide up and coming musicians the chance to emulate some of the world famous bands that have originated from Manchester.

The city of Manchester is the commercial and financial capital of a large economic region that plays host to more than 157,000 companies and businesses. The city itself boasts a large consumer and business market, which is comprised of hundreds of thousands of households and workers, all contributing to producing a GDP of £18 billion.
