WHERE IS THE UK ECONOMY GOING POST COVID AND ITS IMPACT ON OUR RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE US AND ASIA
2PM - 3PM
Quo Vadis for the UK economy? This webinar on 24th July at 1400hrs (BST) will address the future for the UK economy post COVID, post BREXIT as the UK aspires to create new bilateral trade deals and the implications for our relationships with America and Asia. To discuss this issue we are extremely fortunate to have a remarkable panel of economists:
