Key economic issues facing the UK for 2022 onwards

03 November 2021 - Late morning - Login for venue

Andrew Smith, Chief Economic Adviser, Industry Forum

Towards the end of 2021, the UK will need to address a range of economic issues and clarify its economic strategy. Besides the impact of the pandemic, costly budget items will include transitioning to renewable energy, upgrading the physical and digital infrastructure, increasing expenditure on health and social care, investing in new technologies and more. In his November budget statement, the Chancellor will reveal whether he will follow the George Osborne approach which led to a decade of austerity, or whether he plans to invest for growth. Before then, in this expert seminar, Andrew Smith, Chief Economic Adviser to the Industry Forum, will outline the current position and the options facing the Chancellor before comments from further panel members and a general discussion.
