The Big Debate

Where Next for the UK Economy Post-Pandemic?

Resolution Foundation fringe event at Labour Party Conference 2021. This event is sponsored by Aviva.

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 we will debate how this economic change might play out over the coming decades, the challenges and opportunities that arise from such change, and what we can to shape that change so that the UK emerges with strong, shared and sustainable prosperity.


Topics covered will include:

  • how to grapple with the structural change brought about by the pandemic;
  • what Brexit means for trade, regulation and competition policy;
  • how to encourage growth that is felt throughout the country;
  • how the UK should transition towards a Net Zero economy.
