Road to recovery – a framework for supporting UK cities and large towns

Join us for the launch of our framework to aid cities' recoveries

Event starts at 11.00-12.00 on 4 June 2020 at Online

The balancing act the Chancellor is currently trying to get right is to remove his unprecedented package of support for businesses without harming the recovery. But this recovery is likely to occur at different speeds in different places. So how should he go about doing this that allows a recovery to take hold up and down the country?

In this online event, Paul Swinney, Director of Policy and Research at Centre for Cities, launches our recommendations for how this should be done. Paul sets out what should become of furloughing, what extra support the government should put in place, and how this should vary across cities and large towns. The presentation is followed by a response from Vicky Pryce, Chief economic adviser and board member at Cebr.

This will be followed by a Q&A session chaired by Andrew Carter, Chief Executive of Centre for Cities.
