Following the successful Westminster launches of both the East of England submission to the 2019 Budget and Spending Review and the Industrial Strategy Prospectus of the UK’s Innovation Corridor, we are delighted to invite you to our next meeting, which is a collaboration between the East of England APPG and the APPG for the UK’s Innovation Corridor.

The two Groups are coming together to focus on the key infrastructure priorities that can deliver both innovation and inclusion, thereby ensuring that the potential to deliver a more productive and prosperous economy is realised. As we look beyond Brexit, we will hear what is needed from the Government to deliver a fully firing engine for growth, benefitting both the Exchequer and communities across the East of England and along one of the most vital corridors in the UK. 

In addition to those listed above, we are also expecting London Stansted Airport and Highways England to make short statements and for a senior Government Minister to respond to what is said. If you are able to attend what should be a very interesting as well as timely and important meeting, please RSVP by emailing
