Are we actually serious about growth?

Join Tony Danker for a CBI-Centre for Policy Studies event where he’ll be calling on the government to set its sights on a more ambitious growth trajectory for the UK economy.

Two years on from Brexit, and the economic debate is stagnant. We’re talking about high taxes and high spending – not unleashing business investment and catalysing productivity in the transition to a net zero economy.

Lowballing growth lowballs our economy and fails to realise the country’s aspirations.

In his first major speech of 2022, CBI Director General Tony Danker will argue that we have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to fix our record of weak growth and flatlining productivity - to become a world leader in green energy, a hotbed for technological innovation, and a global trading superpower. The alternative is economic stagnation, low aspiration, and the UK trailing behind our global competitors.

Tony will be joined by Robert Colvile of the Centre for Policy Studies think tank. Together, they’ll discuss what government should do to put the UK back on a high-growth path and the invaluable role that business can play in realising our growth ambitions.

As the UK stands at an economic crossroads, what new ideas are there to bring to the table?


Welcome from Robert Colvile (Director, Centre for Policy Studies)
