A Budget for a defining year

With the coronavirus pandemic having heavily impacted the UK business landscape, and disrupting operations worldwide, many companies are still fighting to survive this crisis, whilst thinking about 'what next?'.

The Budget this year comes at a time when businesses are continuing to face significant pressure from the COVID-19 economic crisis, and resilience is low. But with hope on the horizon, 2021 brings with it the opportunity to lay foundations for a competitive, dynamic and modern economy, as well as addressing the harsh reality that businesses face today.Join Rain Newton-Smith (Chief Economist, CBI), Charlene Lyons (Chief Executive Officer, Black Sheep Brewery) and Andy Brown (Group Corporate Affairs Director, Manchester Airport Group), for a discussion on the CBI’s Budget submission, and how businesses have adapted and responded to the economic environment over the past year, including:

  • An overview of the CBI’s Budget submission to the Treasury, and the key asks of businesses
  • Insights from businesses on how they have adapted and responded to the events of the last year
  • A discussion on the factors which will help shape the business environment for years to come, and how to build back better


  • Rain Newton-Smith, Chief Economist, CBI
