Municipal recovery

The Government has praised the UK’s regional cities as engines of growth. This panel will consider what policymakers can do to make UK cities more globally competitive, make best use of their world-leading universities, harness green investment to deliver net zero, and build the infrastructure that connects city and regional opportunities.
