As part of GIIA’s engagement with the UK Government, we recently hosted a virtual round table meeting with Financial Secretary to the Treasury Rt Hon Jesse Norman MP and a number of our investor members to discuss the need to resolve the mechanisms through which government can access private investment to enable the delivery of infrastructure in the UK.
The roundtable touched on three key areas of discussion; existing funding models, the scope for new vehicles, and blockers to investment. GIIA members expressed the importance of ensuring that the UK remains an attractive investment destination and the important role that private investors can play in supporting the delivery of key strategic government policies such as the UK’s commitment to Net Zero by 2050 as well as the levelling up agenda.
Both sides have committed to a continued dialogue with a follow up meeting to be scheduled later in the Autumn.
