How to restart an inclusive economy in Bristol post-COVID-19: A report by Fuad Mahamed

Fuad Mahamed, CEO of ACH, writes about the acute and pressing need for an inclusive economic recovery post-COVID-19, one that will leave no one behind.

This intervention follows the recent inequalities faced by BAME communities as a result of COVID-19, as well as the vital and integral contribution these communities have made to fighting the virus, both within the NHS and in further vital key worker roles. 

Fuad sets out a blueprint about what is needed to ensure BAME businesses are not left behind in economic recovery plans, but are placed at the centre of an inclusive and resilient economic recovery.
