Aberdeen City Council is hosting the State of the Cities Conference, for a second year, on Wednesday, 6 November 2019, 9:30-13:30.
Following the success of the inaugural State of the Cities Conference in November 2018, Aberdeen City Council will host the event to coincide with the launch of the second independent report by the Economic Policy Panel on the city and regional economy.
The independent panel is comprised of Professor Graeme Roy, Director, Fraser of Allander Institute, Dougie Peedle, Chief Economic Adviser to the States of Jersey, and Hanan Morsy, Lead Economist, Southern and Eastern Mediterranean for the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). Their work supports the Council’s annual credit rating by Moody’s, following it's £370million bond issue to contribute towards the financing of the Council’s capital programme.
Aberdeen City Council is the first authority in Scotland to issue a bond and to commission an annual report on how the city economy is performing while highlighting potential growth in the years ahead.
