Consulco presents the “Resilient Cities: London and Limassol’’ Part of NLA’s City Dialogues Programme, in association with Consulco, a digital event taking place on 16th of June 2022 at 12:00-13:30 (GMT +3).
Limassol is known as the investment hub of Cyprus and is one of the most important locations for tourism, trading and service providing on the island. It is a well-known business hub for real estate investments and plays a leading role in the economic growth of Cyprus. London is the world’s hub for global investment, with a world-leading financial centre, attracting business, workers, and investors alike with its vibrant culture, innovative eco-system, and world-class infrastructure. Despite this status, all cities have been affected by the impacts of the global pandemic, so how can cities remain resilient and attract economic, social, and green investment on an international scale?
In this City Dialogue, London and Limassol will discuss the differences and similarities they share as global investment hubs. How are they driving investment back into the city following the fallout from the pandemic? What are the business and investment opportunities of each city and how can they learn from each other?
This live webinar will take place simultaneously in both cities at 10:00 in London and 12:00 in Limassol. This event forms a part of the NLA City Dialogues programme, which brings together speakers and audiences to foster cross-city dialogue and learning between cities.
