Rural Resurgence

The role of the rural economy in levelling up

Levelling up is the centrepiece of the Government’s domestic agenda, but there is a risk that it could become focused on urban areas and fail to acknowledge the distinct issues faced by rural communities. This event will seek to understand the role of the rural economy in the levelling up agenda.
