This Seminar is run in accordance with the Chatham House Rule.

On 10th May, the ONS will release the first estimate of GDP for the first quarter of 2019, giving an indication of how the ongoing Brexit process is influencing the UK’s economy. Additionally, the impact of the apparently slowing Global economy is yet to be seen on the Midlands.

We invite you to join in the discussion where we will discuss regional economic trends so far in 2019 and future prospects as Brexit is delayed further.
