Debate from Commonwealth and Local Government Forum's biannual meeting

In March, the Local Government Channel attended the Commonwealth and Local Government Forum's biannual meeting to discuss the diverse ways the world is approaching global recession. Ciaran Flannery chairs the debate which covers stimulative measures in South Africa, the collectivisation of debt in New Zealand, and shared services in Canada - and the importance of making the most out of tough times.

(This is an abridged version of the full discussion - the full version, will be available after the UK referendum on May 5th)
