Strategic partners

An early evening business network event to celebrate 2017 Capital of Culture in Hull with Deputy Director General, Josh Hardie and other speakers.

The CBI’s work on Regional Growth fed into the government’s recent release of the Industrial Strategy green paper, highlighting that Hull was a “star performer” having increased its nominal GVA per hour by 43% in the ten years prior to 2014.  As the theme for season two of the City of Culture celebrations is Routes and Roots, Josh Hardie, CBI Deputy Director General, will be speaking about how regional economies can benefit from successful partnerships in the local business community and how improving transport links are a key driver of increasing productivity.
