About this event

The British Chamber of Commerce for Luxembourg is pleased to invite our members to the second in a series of Global Insights Leadership Programme in partnership with the British Chambers of Commerce, UK. Join Dr Adam Marshall, BCC Director General in conversation with Andrew Bailey, Governor of the Bank of England, on Tuesday 22 September at 08:30 - 09:30 (UK time).

The ongoing impact of the global pandemic means that global economic conditions are likely to remain challenging in the short-term and the end of the transition period approaching on 31 December brings further uncertainty for UK business.

Topics on the agenda include:

  • the Bank of England's decision to significantly expand quantitative easing;
  • how the Bank works with financial institutions to provide on the ground support for businesses; and
  • what further steps are needed to help kickstart economic recovery.
