Chancellor Rishi Sunak is due to hand down the 2021 Budget on 3rd March, twelve months after the last Budget in March 2020. A year on, following the enormous economic and social impacts of COVID-19, unprecedented Government spending and the UK’s official departure from the EU, the UK Government is facing a complex set of challenges including driving economic recovery, recouping public finances and shaping the UK’s new place and sovereignty in a post-Brexit, post-pandemic economy.
In a globalised world, where different countries have been impacted by the pandemic in widely divergent ways, the UK Budget will need to meet both the short-term needs of Britain’s economy as well as make far-reaching strategic choices on the shape of its recovery.
In this session, we’ll hear from our expert panel of speakers on:
- The economic outlook for the UK and what we can expect from the forthcoming UK Budget;
- The global context and how other regions including the EU, USA and ASEAN are expected to recover in 2021; and
- How changing economic conditions are likely to affect companies operating in the UK and globally.
We hope you can join us for this relevant and timely discussion on the economic outlook for the UK in the new global order.
