On Bauer Business Focus — A conversation on the United Kingdom’s influence on the Houston energy industry with Andrew Schneider, business reporter for KUHF 88.7 FM.
With more than 3,700 energy-related businesses in the area, Houston is known as the energy capital of the world, which hasn’t gone unnoticed by leaders from across the globe, including those from across the pond.
Andrew Millar, the United Kingdom’s Consul General in Houston, dropped by Bauer Business Focus recently to discuss how the country is looking to Houston for energy solutions.
“Houston exerts its own force of gravity just through its very size and concentration around the energy industry, but there’s a whole range of interest that we’re involved in all around the state and around the region,” Millar said. “I spend most of my time around Houston and it’s a huge, as I say, center of gravity for UK business.”
The United Kingdom’s relationship with the Houston area is proving beneficial for both the city and Europe, he added.
“We are the number one investors in Texas and through that investment, we create 70,000 jobs so we’re pretty significant here and there’s a lot of interest in Houston.”
