Joining the dots: how to create the right ‘system of cities’ in the UK
Exploring economic and infrastructure issues beyond London and the South East. Post-Brexit, the UK’s economic and international competitiveness will depend on all cities being able to reach their full potential. Furthermore, our major cities need to be able to have the right relationship with each other in both economic and infrastructure terms, to aid the flow of people, ideas and capital. Cities such as Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds have, arguably, not enjoyed the same investment and growth as the capital. Can we correct our regional imbalances through infrastructure investment alone? How can London respond better to disparities between the regions? And how can UK cities become even more specialised in the creation of high-value, technology-based products and services.

Chaired by Jim Coleman, BuroHappold Engineering
