There are long-lasting benefits for British businesses following the country's hosting of the London 2012 Games. That's the conclusion of a new report commissioned by Lloyds Banking Group.
A report called The Economic Impact of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games spells great news for businesses throughout the country.

The guide is packed with tips and guidance to help British businesses of all sizes access growth opportunities, both within the UK and globally. Among the Guides' highlights are:
