We launched our report London’s Infrastructure: Investing for Growth ahead of the summit. The report showed that investing properly in London’s infrastructure could boost the capital’s economy by £1.9 trillion over the long term.
Chris Grigg, Chief Executive of British Land and Chair of the report steering group, was featured on the BBC’s Wake up to Money programme (21 minutes) and there was further coverage in The Times, Infrastructure Intelligence, Building and Property Week.
