Answered By: 
The Mayor

My Chief Economic Advisor, Gerard Lyons, will be engaging with as broad a spectrum of London stakeholders as possible. This will include key stakeholders in the finance and business service industries, alongside a broad spectrum of London's economy, including groups that represent SME's, as well as SMEs themselves. We are also engaging with a number of political stakeholders including ministries, representatives of major political parties and working closely with departments of Local Government. Finally, we are aiming to engage with a wide variety of think-tanks, NGOs, academics and other learned individuals, to get a picture of the most up to date thinking on Europe across the board.
