Rural Business 2030

Throughout 2016, the CLA led a programme of discussion culminating in our flagship rural business conference which was held in London on 6 December, with the theme of ‘Rural Business 2030: Unlocking Investment, Unlocking Potential’.

The conference brought businesses and policy makers together at Church House in Westminster to discuss practical ways in which together we can achieve the vision of a robust, productive and sustainable rural economy in 2030. Delegates met entrepreneurs and heard the outputs of new research into the businesses that are shaping the rural economy. You can view highlights from the day in the video below.

The event saw the launch of the CLA's Rural Business 2030 report. The report is the result of a year-long programme gathering evidence and insight about the future of rural business. It includes large scale research of investment intentions by rural business owners and a series of seminars gathering experts together from across the rural business and other sectors, academics and policymakers.
