With the Prime Minister having pledged nothing short of an infrastructure revolution in the run up to the General Election, join us in Manchester for what is set to be a timely discussion on investment in the UK’s transport infrastructure.
The CBI and KPMG are holding a roundtable examining the role that commuting can play in solving the UK’s productivity puzzle. The event is the first in a series and will form part of a newly launched CBI/ KPMG campaign exploring “The Future of Commuting”.
The roundtable will bring together a small group of senior representatives and take place at KPMG’s Manchester Office. It will be hosted by Ed Thomas, KPMG’s UK Head of Transport and Lewis Atter, KPMG Associate Partner, and will be chaired by the CBI’s Director of Infrastructure and Energy Tom Thackray.
This discussion will contribute to the publication of a new CBI policy paper in April, and will look to consider:
How can we ensure enough is done to address the role of commuting in improving UK productivity?
What do businesses and organisations in the region view as the current blockers to delivering improved connectivity for commuters?
What could new mechanisms of funding for regional infrastructure look like?
How can we promote investment in infrastructure across both urban and rural locations?
What impact do businesses think commuting issues are having on labour market productivity and mobility?
