East of England Economic Summit

Organiser: ICAEW



Date & Time: 25 May 2021 - 8:30 am-10:00 am

In May 2021, ICAEW will release its latest Business Confidence Monitor™ report, one of the largest and most comprehensive quarterly reviews of UK business confidence providing a regular snapshot of the economy informed by senior business professionals running all types of businesses across the UK. This, in conjunction with a regional summary from the Bank of England for East and your opportunity to input into local discussions makes this event one not to be missed as local professional leaders drive the sustainable economic recovery across the East of England.

Your attendance at the East of England Economic Summit, bringing together ICAEW’s nationwide research with expert views from local panellists and speakers is more important than ever before. As we approach mid-year, it is of paramount importance to reflect on how heavily our lives and businesses continue to be impacted by the COVID pandemic and how we, as local professional leaders, can begin to drive a sustainable economic recovery across our region. Analysis and business insight continues to be crucial for policy makers, regulators and businesses themselves so we will start with presentations from both ICAEW and the Bank of England on their views at both a national and regional level before breaking into panel groups to explore the implications of this at a local level. The overarching objective is to stimulate debate on how the local economy can begin to emerge stronger through a sustainable recovery. We will also reflect on how businesses have fared since our previous Economic Summit in December 2020.
Your input will be sought through participation in a breakout group of your choosing which you will select on the day. Here panellists will examine either a specific topic or the economic landscape of the locality and the key challenges and opportunities unique to the county utilising key themes including the impact of COVID-19 on the local economy of the county, access to skills and workers, the role of towns and cities, local business support and capital investment. The Chair will pose questions to each of the speakers to generate ideas on how to drive a sustainable economic recovery of the locality with the audience providing comments on the points of view being expressed and their individual insights via the chat facility
