The decisive Conservative general election win brings to an end three years of parliamentary paralysis and policy inertia. The new administration will need to act quickly on a range of urgent issues as well as the implementation of the transition to a new relationship with the EU. This roundtable will be led by an expert panel that will discuss: The economic outlook for the UK, The Brexit transition, How UK trade and industry could be transformed, and The climate emergency. It will be an opportunity to discuss the broad implications of the new landscape facing UK business in the new decade.
