Midlands Perspectives - February 2019

Midlands Perspectives - February 2019

With speakers from ONS, IHS Markit and DLA Piper

We launched our latest quarterly Midlands Perspectives, on the same day as the release of the 2018 growth figure and the first regional PMI of 2019, as well as our updated forecasts for the next 5 years. The discussion centred around the impact of Brexit on the West Midlands - especially on the automotive sector - HS2 and transport connectivity as well as skills gaps around the region.
