Next steps for UK infrastructure: delivery, investor confidence and new sources of finance

Morning, Thursday, 19th October 2017

Glaziers Hall, 9 Montague Close, London SE1 9DD

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



Delegates at this seminar will assess the next steps for infrastructure following the UK’s decision to leave the European Union.


With proposals for the upgrading of infrastructure as one of its ten priorities for driving industrial growth, those attending will consider the implications for investment in UK infrastructure projects going forward. Discussion will also focus on the key priorities for ensuring a competitive market to encourage both public and private investment in cross-sector infrastructure projects, and what more policymakers can do to unlock project investment following the decision to extend their UK Guarantee Scheme to 2026.


Planned sessions will look at the opportunities and challenges for securing investment in existing and future pipeline projects. Sessions are expected to bring together key policymakers with a variety of stakeholder groups from across infrastructure, construction and investment sectors - including insurance and pension funds - alongside commentators, analysts, academics and reporting press.
