About this event

Assessing the performance of British firms

British firms have had a tumultuous decade - from the financial crisis to the Covid-19 pandemic. The 2020s brings new challenges as they grapple with post-Brexit trade and regulatory changes, the net zero transition, and improving the UK's woeful productivity record. But what is the state of British business as it heads into this decisive decade?

How dynamic is British capitalism? Which firms' poor performance lies behind the UK's persistently low productivity? What are the key differences between our firms and their competitors abroad? And what role should policy play in helping ensure firms can deliver the high wage, high productivity economy that everyone wants to see?
