Webinar: In conversation with The Governor of the Bank of England, Mr Andrew Bailey

Tuesday, September 22, 2020 - 10:30 to 11:30

The ongoing impact of the global pandemic means that global economic conditions are likely to remain challenging in the short-term and the end of the transition period approaching on 31 December brings further uncertainty for UK business.

In this virtual event, Dr Adam Marshall, BCC Director General will be joined by Andrew Bailey, the Governor of the Bank of England as part of BCC's Global Insights Leaders Programme.

Topics on the agenda include:

  • the Bank of England's decision to significantly expand quantitative easing;
  • how the Bank works with financial institutions to provide on the ground support for businesses; and
  • what further steps are needed to help kickstart economic recovery.
