2021 will be a critical year for the UK’s future, with a smooth and secure economic recovery not guaranteed. The action by government, regulators and businesses will shape the route back to prosperity and the outlook for consumers and the wider economy.

On Tuesday 9th March, WA brought to together an expert panel, chair by WA’s Rhoda Macdonald, to discuss these issues in the wake the government’s roadmap for easing lockdown and Budget, and hear their perspectives and experiences:

  • Chris Giles, Economics Editor at the Financial Times
  • Vicky Pryce, renowned Economist and commentator, and former Joint Head of the Government’s Economic Service
  • Poppy Trowbridge, former Special Adviser to the Chancellor of the Exchequer

Our expert panel explored the year ahead for the UK including:

  • Will the next 12 months deliver growth, volatility or recession?
  • What are the key policy and economic interventions to ensure a strong economic rebound?
  • Can government, central banks, policymakers, and industry work together to deliver it, and what challenges stand in our way?
