Event description

Description

The CBI, in partnership with Irwin Mitchell LLP, are pleased to invite you to the launch of the latest CBI report ‘Unlocking Regional Growth’.

CBI research has indicated that unlocking higher regional productivity could add £208bn to the UK economy over the next decade, which would mean the economy is 10% bigger than it would have otherwise been in 2027. Increasing regional productivity could therefore provide a crucial form of growth as the UK prepares to leave the EU, while also addressing concerns about regional inequalities in living standards and wages which have comes to light since the EU referendum.

The CBI’s ‘Unlocking Regional Growth’ report looks at what drives growth and productivity in the UK, and explores the health of each region in relation to these factors and each other. It also makes recommendations as to how each region can look to increase their productivity and grow and over the next decade.

We are therefore delighted to invite you to join us for local launches of this report in Gatwick and Southampton. During these breakfast roundtables Mia Andersson, Senior Policy Advisor for Economic Intelligence at the CBI, will discuss what the report’s regional analysis reveals about Gatwick and Southampton, and the potential for future growth in these areas. There will also be an opportunity for you to feed your thoughts and ideas back to the CBI, who is campaigning for the Government and key decision makers to adapt their plans to maximise productivity potential, both at a local level and on a national scale through the Industrial Strategy.

We will be running two launch events in the South East, each of which will look at different areas. We hope you will be able to join us for one, or both, events:
