Against the backdrop of renewed determination at the federal and state level to address the infrastructure crisis in the U.S., City & Financial Global’s P3 Policy and Delivery Summit, which is being held at the exclusive Cosmos Club in Washington D.C. on May 14th and 15th, will be a key gathering for senior members of the U.S. and international infrastructure community.
In December, the UK Government published its proposals for a new skills-based immigration system, which ministers describe as the biggest shake-up in immigration policy in the last forty years. The consultation paper envisaged that the new system would come into effect at the end of the transition period under the Prime Minister’s proposed EU exit deal, which would be January 2021. However, given the uncertainty surrounding that deal and the likelihood of at least a three-month extension of Article 50, it could come into effect at the end of June, if the UK and EU were not able to agree a deal by the end of a short extension. The objective of the briefing is to analyse in depth the implications of the proposed new immigration scheme for the firms in this industry.
This high-profile forum will discuss key opportunities and challenges for the national energy mix and will explore further expansion of renewable and nuclear energy, storage infrastructure and gas.
Phil Graham, Chief Executive, National Infrastructure Commission, will be giving a keynote address.
Now in its 16th year, City & Financial Global’s UK Infrastructure Policy & Investment Summit, has established itself as the leading conference of its kind. It always attracts a sizeable gathering of leaders from the UK infrastructure industry, both from the public and private sectors. Each year, the programme examines the key policy and market developments that influence investment in, and financing of, infrastructure projects in the UK.
Recent weeks have seen a flurry of activity around proposed reform of the audit sector and its regulation. The Kingman Review, the CMA Market Study, the current investigation by the BEIS Committee and the proposed Brydon Review are all helping focus attention on the dominance of the Big Four and the role of the Financial Reporting Council.
The purpose of the conference is to look at the case for audit reform in the UK in the light of all the various reviews. High level representatives from all the stakeholders concerned will be on the speaker panels and we are delighted that Sir Donald Brydon has agreed to give a keynote speech.
On March 29, the new UK Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act will come into force. This conference will focus on the impact on corporates and financial institutions; examine the implications for enforcement and litigation issues and aim to give practical guidance.
This event is being organised in partnership with the City of London Corporation, TheCityUK and UK Finance. The timing of the 4th event in the series has been determined by the feedback from the 350 participants at the last summit in November, who opted overwhelmingly for a further event to be held in March, on the basis that by then the lie of the land would be much clearer in terms of the type of BREXIT that will form the basis of the UK’s exit from the EU.
With a keynote speech by Matthew Wagstaff, Head of Bribery and Corruption, The Serious Fraud Office, this forum will help you identify the best strategies to manage regulatory and internal investigations and will help you understand both the technical and legal requirements of multiple jurisdictions, as well as the practical concerns and investigative methods used by government regulators and criminal prosecutors.
