Firms with London offices 'positive about Olympics'
More than three-quarters of businesses with London offices believe the Olympic Games 2012 will paint the east of the capital in a positive light.

Over 60 per cent also told the Confederation of British Industry (CBI)/KPMG London Business Survey that public transport is likely to improve as a result of the event being held in the city.

When asked about the 2012 Games, 92 per cent of organisations said they think the event will benefit the capital on an international basis.

It would appear that businesses are also preparing for the potential impact the competition may have on their operations, with 13 per cent yet to consider changes to logistics and transport operations.

"The Games will showcase London as a world-leading business location and highlight the success of UK firms in delivering a complex construction and infrastructure project. Expertise that can be easily exported around the world," commented London region director at the CBI Sara Parker.

Commencing on July 27th, the Olympic Games will run until August 12th, while the Paralympic Games will start on August 29th and finish on September 9th.
