London Chamber of Commerce and Industry has today welcomed investment announced by the Mayor of London in safely recovering the capital's economy, following London being economically hit harder than elsewhere in the UK.
Richard Burge, Chief Executive of London Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said: “London has been harder hit by the economic impact of COVID-19 than anywhere in the U.K.
“The Mayor’s investment in recovering our capital’s economy is both vital and welcome, and it’s essential that the Government also invest in any targeted support London needs, including the right settlement for Transport for London. It simply cannot be ignored that London is the nation’s world city and its economy is key to the UK’s recovery from COVID-19.”
