The London Assembly is holding a seminar focussed on London's economy and the role the Mayor, and other public bodies, should be playing to support it in light of the current turmoil. This free seminar is followed by a buffet lunch.
Speakers will look at a range of possible scenarios as to how the crisis could develop and how London can prepare for changing economic circumstances. This will be followed by a panel discussion. Guests are invited to submit in advance of the seminar questions to ask the panel on the day.
The organisers would particularly like to encourage representatives from local small businesses to attend.
Places at the seminar will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Places can be secured by contacting Natalie.Arthur@london.gov.uk or 020 7983 4397.
