Economic Justice for Wales
What could economic justice mean for Wales?
The UK economy is not working. It is no longer delivering rising standards for a majority of the population. Too many people are in insecure jobs; young people are set to be poorer than their parents; the nations and regions of the UK are diverging further.
The IPPR Commission on Economic Justice was established in 2016 in the wake of the vote to leave the EU to examine the challenges facing the UK economy and to make recommendations for reform. Its final report Prosperity and Justice: A Plan for the New Economy, published in September 2018, made the case for a radical overhaul of our economy.
IPPR is now delighted to invite people to take part in an interactive event dedicated to exploring paths to economic justice in Wales. Mark Drakeford AM, First Minister of Wales, will be joined by community leaders, business and trade union representatives to respond to your questions and thoughts on the fairness and prosperity of the nation's economy.
This event is open to all and will take place on Thursday 18th July, 5.30-8:00pm at The Temple of Peace, King Edward VII Ave, Cardiff CF10 3AP. The event will open with refreshments at 17:30, with speeches beginning at 18:00. It will then finish with further refreshments between 19:30-20:00.
Confirmed speakers include:
Rt Hon Mark Drakeford AM, First Minister of Wales
Cerys Furlong, Chief Executive, Chwarae Teg
Martin Mansfield, Secretary General, Wales TUC
Jean Church MBE, Chair, Institute of Directors Wales
Mrs Uzo Iwobi OBE, Black History Coordinator for Wales
