In light of Brexit, what can the UK government do to make the framework for business and financial services as competitive as possible?
With Article 50 set to be triggered by the end of this month, this is the first in a series of two breakfasts for policy specialists at which we will discuss what measures the UK can take right now to ensure and improve the competitiveness of the business and financial services framework in the UK. While the UK’s room for manoeuvre will be restricted by the terms of a future agreement with the EU, there are plenty of areas where the industry can work with government to enhance the current environment (from tax and regulation to ease of doing business and investing in infrastructure).
The aim of this breakfast is to generate some practical ideas and priorities to feed into the industrial strategy being reviewed by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, and to HM Treasury.
The audience will be mainly policy and government affairs specialists.
