IPT Dinner Discussion

The UK is the leading location for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in Europe, creating around 80,000 jobs last year alone. However, with Brexit on the horizon in an increasingly competitive world, the Government has highlighted the need for action to retain and enhance the UK’s attractiveness to overseas investors. Competitive infrastructure, energy costs, skills and a strong science base have been highlighted as key drivers of this success. This dinner discussion will:

  • Explore what can be learnt from inward investment strategies of the UK’s key competitors
  • Reflect on how the UK can develop a more strategic approach to targeting inward investment and ensure that the UK remains attractive for multinational firms
  • Explore how government trade and inward investment policies can help open up markets for UK firms and boost productivity and long-term growth across our economy.
