CITY VIEWS | DO YOU THINK THE OLYMPICS WILL BE A BOOST TO THE ECONOMY?

ALEX TROTT ABERDEEN ASSET MANAGEMENT

I think it mainly will affect the retail sector, because of the amount of people coming into the area. I agree that London will attract more attention than usual. It’s a big player in the world.

I doubt there will be a profit overall, in fact, it probably cost more to develop the transport and policing and everything else. Possibly there will be more foreign investments from construction and so on.

I agree the Olympics will have an impact. It will be beneficial and bring quite a lot to the British economy. For London, it will bring a significant profit and a lot of activity will be generated.
