Political Briefing - East of England

With less than 50 days to go until the end of the transition period on 31 December, and the impact of COVID-19 set to continue to be felt across the country, it will be more important than ever for businesses to understand how to plan for the coming months. So, join the CBI’s Campaigns and UK-EU Negotiations teams for an exclusive look at the latest political insight and an update on the UK’s future trading relationship with the EU.

Also on the agenda are the East of England mayoral elections in May which will determine the future direction of combined authorities across England. The CBI is working on manifestos for each of the combined authority mayoral elections and is seeking member input to shape the thinking of incoming mayors. We’ll aim to have newly elected mayors set out a pro-business agenda including championing a strong economic vision, securing workforces for the future and building back better. Your early input is important to ensure we’re communicating the right messages as the remits of mayors grow in scope.

By attending this briefing, you will get the latest update on what the end of the transition period means for business as well as hear the CBI’s latest political insight first-hand. You will also have the opportunity to discuss the key policy issues affecting your company with other business leaders in the East of England and see how these feed into the CBI’s priorities for the months ahead.

By attending this briefing you will:

  • Hear first-hand the CBI’s latest interactions with the UK government with Hannah Collins, Senior Campaigns Advisor, CBI
  • Get an insight into the latest Brexit developments and what they might mean for your business from Shara Samra, CBI Policy Advisor, UK-EU Negotiations
  • Benefit from a Chatham House rule Q&A discussion to share other organisations’ experiences and plans post-Brexit – providing inspiration for you to think differently about the challenges ahead.
