In response to the ever-changing and sometimes volatile economic situation that the UK economy has faced over the course of the pandemic, the British Ports Association has organised a short webinar on the UK trade outlook and the economy on Wednesday 19 May, 10.30-11.15am.
This will examine the economic viewpoint from the UK Department for International Trade and the Bank of England, which can provide a high level guide for ports and maritime operators.
We are delighted to welcome Graham Stuart MP, the UK Minister for Exports within the DIT, to open the webinar and give his perspective on the economic outlook and future challenges and opportunities for British trade.
Following this the eminent economist, Michael Saunders, of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee, will deliver an update on the BoE’s most recent monetary report and give an overview of UK trade patterns.
This session is free for all members of the BPA to attend and also free for representatives from any UK port, terminal or shipping operator, as well as any government official who would find this useful
