Using incentives to strengthen economies and performance
Jason Krupp, Research Fellow of The New Zealand Initiative will focus on the example of Manchester City Council and how it combined with its neighbouring authorities to strengthen its leadership, governance and capacity to partner with central government. Acting as a combined authority the councils have convinced central government to provide additional powers, funding and responsibilities that have enabled the city to achieve significant growth and development.
