Investing in a Connected North
Please join us on the 6th October for our Investing in a Connected North Seminar. Chaired by Ed Cox, Leader of the IPPR North and featuring guest panelists, Sir Richard Leese, Leader of Manchester City Council, and Jon Lamonte, Chief Executive of Transport for Greater Manchester, this seminar will discuss what transport and infrastructure will be needed to support the Northern Powerhouse across the North of England, and critically, how it will be funded and delivered
We are extending our invitations to those we know can contribute to a lively positive debate about the economic benefits of infrastructure investment and what needs to be done to deliver a Northern Powerhouse. There’s strong momentum in Manchester’s growing economy and we want to draw on this to promote support amongst the business community right across the North of England.
