The event

On 10 July 2018, the National Infrastructure Commission published the UK’s first ever assessment of the country’s long-term infrastructure needs and recommendations for meeting them. 

The National Infrastructure Assessment (NIA) covers sectors including transport, water, digital, waste and energy, and presents a vision for UK infrastructure up to 2050. 

In the week following the NIA’s publication, infrastructure leaders from across the North gathered in Manchester’s Museum of Science and Industry to discuss the report’s recommendations and how they can be delivered to boost economic growth in the regions and nationwide. At a roundtable event we organised, Sir John Armitt, chair of the Commission, introduced the report and opened the debate.
