International Connectivity in the North East
This roundtable discussion will bring together key stakeholders in the North East to explore the region's international connectivity, looking at how it trades overseas.
Thursday 6 June, 11:00 - 13:00
Connectivity is key to the future prospects of Northern businesses, and the North East in particular is a strong exporting region. IPPR North is currently undertaking a research project, in association with the North East Chamber of Commerce, to explore the current strengths and weaknesses of the North East as an international gateway.
This event is part of a series designed to feed in to the research, and to explore in depth the strengths and weaknesses of North East connectivity, and how the different modes of transport and communication interact with one another.
The event will focus on international connectivity exploring in detail how the North East trades overseas, with a particular emphasis on the role of ports and airports.
Each event will bring together key players from business, academia, transport providers and local and national government to discuss and debate the emerging findings from the research and to consider key priorities.
This event is by invitation only and space is limited. If you are interested in attending this event, or would like further information on future connectivity roundtables, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
