Tampa makes pitch to bring British to town

Taxpayers may help subsidize office space to entice the British government to open a trade office here, city officials said Wednesday.

The city has offered to either give the British government free office space or help pay for office space if they open a consular office in Tampa, said Margarita Gonzalez, a liaison with the Office of International Affairs.

Tampa and Orlando are both wooing the British, said Mayor Pam Iorio.

The office would primarily handle trade and economic development issues, not travel and immigration, an official said.
