Rebuilding to Last: how to design an inclusive, resilient and sustainable growth strategy beyond the Summer Statement?


Join us at the launch of our latest report, commissioned from the Grantham Research Institute at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Building on the initial recovery measures announced by the Prime Minister and Chancellor of the Exchequer, this event will debate what an inclusive, resilient and sustainable growth strategy for the UK should look like after COVID19. As the UK recovers from the economic and social impacts of the pandemic, this event will look at the lessons learnt from past recoveries and will examine why and how the government can align its recovery plan with the UK’s net zero target and other environmental goals.

This event will launch the Aldersgate Group’s latest report, Rebuilding to Last, commissioned by James Rydge and Dimitri Zenghelis at the Grantham Research Institute, LSE. The report provides one of the most in-depth economic analyses to date on the current economic situation facing the UK and the investment and policy decisions the Government needs to take if it is to deliver an inclusive, resilient and sustainable recovery after COVID-19.

Following a presentation from Dimitri Zenghelis on the report’s key findings and a keynote speech from the Rt Hon Kwasi Kwarteng MP, a multi-sector business panel will debate key priorities for the government in the run up to the 2020 Spending Review and Autumn Budget.
