Centre for Policy Studies
Visions of Growth
What is the role of business in the recovery? How has the pandemic affected the housing sector, and how can we use housing to drive growth? How important is regulation reform to boosting economic growth rates? What impact does this all have on the Government's levelling up agenda? How can we recover from the economic shock of the pandemic, and boost economic growth rates in the long term? All of these questions and more will be explored at The Centre for Policy Studies' virtual Going for Growth Conference, on Friday 11 September 2020. The conference will bring together a host of expert speakers from the worlds of politics, businesses, economics, and the media, to discuss and debate key questions around the post-pandemic economic recovery, and what can be done to boost our economic growth rates. The Covid-19 pandemic and resulting lockdown have had an unprecedented effect on the economy. As the pandemic slows and the lockdown eases, minds are turning to what needs to be done to bounce back from the plummet in GDP and slow in growth rates, and how we might use this opportunity to go further than before. The Centre for Policy Studies is running its new Going for Growth programme to examine how we can ensure a business-led recovery from the pandemic, and the reforms we can make across industries and policy areas to boost economic growth in the long term, an agenda that has needed attention since before the lockdown. The first report in this programme, ‘After the Virus’, was written by former Chancellor the Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP and proposed a host of policy recommendations for getting the economy moving again. It is the greatest economic question we face: how do we turn today's stagnant growth rates into a solid and sustained economic expansion? The Going for Growth Conference will bring this work together to contribute to the thinking around the economic recovery and driving growth. Register below to hear from a range of leading politicians, business leaders, and experts from across policy areas and industries discuss these key questions and more.

Stakeholder Capitalism: A Manifesto for a Cohesive and Sustainable World · The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2020 will convene under the theme, Stakeholders for a Cohesive and Sustainable World · Focus of the meeting will be on renewing the concept of stakeholder capitalism to overcome income inequality, societal division and the climate crisis · Meeting will convene nearly 3,000 leaders from 117 countries including 53 heads of state/government · For more information, please visit www.weforum.org. Share on social media using the hashtag #wef20 Geneva, Switzerland, 14 January 2020 – The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2020, taking place on 21-24 January in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland, will focus on establishing stakeholder capitalism as a way of addressing the world’s greatest challenges, from societal divisions created by income inequality and political polarization to the climate crisis we face today. Underpinning the meeting will be the Davos Manifesto 2020. This document builds on the original Davos Manifesto of 1973, which set out for the first time the stakeholder concept that businesses should serve the interests of all society rather than simply their shareholders. The Davos Manifesto 2020 provides a vision for stakeholder capitalism that touches on a range of important issues of our time, including fair taxation, zero tolerance for corruption, executive pay and respect for human rights. “Business has now to fully embrace stakeholder capitalism, which means not only maximizing profits, but use their capabilities and resources in cooperation with governments and civil society to address the key issues of this decade. They have to actively contribute to a more cohesive and sustainable world,” said Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum. Building on the Manifesto 2020, this year’s programme focuses on achieving maximum impact on the Forum’s platform for public-private cooperation across six core areas of activity: Ecology, Economy, Society, Industry, Technology and Geopolitics. More than 160 individual initiatives, each capable of delivering system-wide transformation, are active on the Forum platform. Significant advances in a number of these, especially in the fields of responsible business, the environment and social mobility, are expected to be confirmed during the meeting. Among the initiatives to be launched at the Annual Meeting is one that aims to plant 1 trillion trees over the next decade and to equip 1 billion people with the necessary skills in the age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. More details on this and the others will be disclosed at the meeting. To learn more about the Forum’s Lighthouse initiatives, click here.
