In Discussion with Minnesota Governor Tim Walz

Join CBI Chief Economist Rain Newton-Smith for a private roundtable with Tim Walz, Governor of the US state of Minnesota.

Governor Walz is the chief executive of a highly skilled, climate-conscious economy worth over $370 billion, and is looking to hear from British businesses about the state of UK-US trade and opportunities for both sides to collaborate in the 21st century economy.

The CBI has called for the UK government and business communities to deepen relationships with individual state governments, and this roundtable is a strong opportunity to hear directly from a governor that supports foreign direct investment and trade as a tool for long term growth.

Speakers include:

  • Rain Newton Smith, Chief Economist, CBI
  • Tim Walz, Governor of the US state of Minnesota

Why attend? 

Hear from the Governor of a US state about opportunities for joint cooperation and how the CBI sees engagement with US state governments as a tool for UK growth, and:

  • Discuss how the UK and Minnesotan economies can collaborate in future industries like green growth, fintech, and advanced manufacturing
  • Ask questions directly to the Governor about opportunities for UK businesses in Minnesota
  • Hear directly from the CBI’s senior team on its approach to trade and investment with the United States.
