About this event

In conversation with Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng

Having suffered the biggest economic contraction in 300 years, the UK economy is back on the road to recovery. But the Covid recovery is just one of many huge economic shifts confronting British businesses over the next decade as the country embarks on a new future outside the EU, faces an urgent transition towards a low-carbon economy, and grapples with rapid technological and population changes.

What will be the state of British firms as they emerge from the pandemic? How can Government strengthen the Covid recovery and deliver on ambitious net zero targets? Where will new found freedoms over regulation, competition policy and subsidies see new policy approaches? And what does the Levelling Up agenda mean for firms and workers?

As part of The Economy 2030 Inquiry, the Resolution Foundation hosted an 'In conversation with' event with Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng to debate and discuss these questions.
