Infrastructure projects could lead the economic recovery from the pandemic

25 March 2021 - Late morning - Login for venue

Sir John Armitt, Chair, National Infrastructure Commission

Most business people see that the pandemic has caused serious damage to some important sectors like hospitality and aviation. Furthermore, it is clear that we need to expand other sectors such as renewable energy, construction and digital infrastructure to address climate change and preserve employment and prosperity levels. They are less clear about government strategy and whether current plans meet the scale of the challenges and opportunities we face. Sir John Armitt, Chair of the National Infrastructure Commission will outline the recently announced National Infrastructure Strategy and lead a discussion of how infrastructure projects could lead to a robust recovery.

Speakers include:

Sir John Armitt, Chair of the National Infrastructure Commission

Jonathan Hart, Infrastructure Partner, Pinsent Mason LLP

Lila Thompson, CEO, British Water

Jonathan Collins, External Affairs Manager, Cadent Gas
