Any future devolution in the English regions needs to work for business and our local communities. Attend, input and help shape the CBI's response to Government on this important topic.
The government is currently putting together a framework for future regional devolution and wants to know what business thinks. The CBI is working on a report to shape the government’s future framework on devolution in England. Members views are essential and we invite all members to get involved in this work.
Members are invited to attend this meeting to discuss devolution and share your perspectives. We'll be discussing questions like;
How aware are you of the possibility of further devolution?
Is it important to your business?
What’s worked well so far for your business?
Where can improvements be made?
Does your business support further devolution?
What might a future framework for devolution look like?
We will look to share a briefing in advance of the event to help you prepare.
We know that areas with devolution have already benefited from government funding as well as a visible spokesperson to help attract investment to the area. We expect further English devolution to come, and if business does not add its voice to the debate some regions could get left behind.
