Politically and economically, we are in very uncertain times. Are you prepared for what lies ahead in the economy next year and how this might impact your business?
During this Economic Briefing, we will be joined by Ben Jones, CBI’s Principal Economist. Ben will share the latest intelligence on the current economic landscape and the outlook for the year ahead. Covering developments within the global economy and within the UK. More immediately, with the general election fast approaching, Ben will provide an overview on the policies coming out of the party manifestos, particularly those areas that are expected to have the biggest impact on business.
Ben will also provide insight into the emerging themes that businesses should be thinking about;
- Will the signs of stabilisation in global manufacturing prove to be a false dawn?
- Are conditions in the UK’s labour market finally on the turn?
- Is business investment in the UK poised for a post-Brexit rebound?
Looking to the longer term, we will discuss how well prepared is the East Midlands region to meet the productivity challenges of the future?
