Twenty-six ministers across eight departments are responsible for making decisions about economic infrastructure in the UK. They are crucial to delivering high-quality infrastructure to help tackle the major challenges facing the UK today, such as lagging productivity and regional inequality.
This event explored the challenges ministers face when making infrastructure decisions, drawing upon the Institute for Government’s Ministers Reflect series and research into how government can make better decisions on infrastructure.
To discuss these issues, our panel included:
- The Rt Hon Sir Patrick McLoughlin MP, Former Secretary of State for Transport
- The Rt Hon Patricia Hewitt, Former Secretary of State for Trade and Industry
The event was chaired by Bronwen Maddox, Director at the Institute for Government.
We would like to thank the Association for Project Management for supporting this event.
