Oxford Cambridge Corridor Economic Growth Conference 2018

June 21 @ 0745hrs - 1645hrs

Oxford Cambridge Corridor Economic Growth Conference 2018 | Event

CONFERENCE OVERVIEW

The Oxford Cambridge Corridor Economic Growth Conference in association with Bouygues Energies & Services takes place on June 21st in Milton Keynes and will be a day of discussion and opportunity with the region’s business and public sector leaders coming together to discuss and debate the key business themes and opportunities for growth.

The corridor represents a phenomenal opportunity for economic growth and will build on the work that has been undertaken by the National Infrastructure Commission and Economic Heartland and showcase and develop the opportunities that are being created by the proposed road and rail links that will link the two cities and unite the cities and towns between them. The long awaited East West transport links will not only improve connectivity and communication but it will provide the infrastructure to drive economic development and growth.

  • England’s Economic Heartland Strategic Alliance is providing a single, joined up voice to Government on all the infrastructure needs, from roads and rail to broadband and utilities.
  • The National Infrastructure Commission believes the area could support a further 700,000 jobs by 2050, increasing GVA by £163bn
  • A population of over 3.5 million and over 175,000 business together generate around £92.5 billion GVA. We have a 21st century economy, particularly rich in high value engineering, science, technology and research and most of these firms are small or medium sized enterprise with many based in rural or semi-rural areas

This event is supported by The National Infrastructure Commission and England’s Economic heartland and will attract in excess of 300 people that are all keen to explore the business opportunities that this corridor presents.
