Labour’s Economic Plan For The UK Post-Covid

In Conversation With Shadow Chancellor Rachel Reeves MP

Resolution Foundation fringe event at Labour Party Conference 2021. This event is organised in partnership with the FSB.

The UK is set for a decade of profound economic change – from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic to our new future outside the EU and the urgent transition towards a low carbon economy. These changes will be set against the backdrop of rapid technological and population change. In this event, Resolution Foundation Chief Executive Torsten Bell will interview Shadow Chancellor Rachel Reeves and FSB National Vice Chair Martin McTague on the big economic challenges facing Britain, and Labour’s economic plan for the country.


Topics covered will include:

  • priorities for the next phase of Covid emergency support;
  • Labour’s wider economic strategy on issues such as new ways of working, post-Brexit trade policy, and the role of businesses in Britain’s Net Zero transition;
  • the wider role of small businesses in Labour’s economic strategy.
