Regional Insight 2018: Are investors backing the UK?

On Thursday 4 October, we welcomed guests to Villa Park Stadium to hear expert insights into the economic and political environment and to address the question ‘are investors backing the UK?’. We were delighted to have an expert panel including Declan Curry, Expert Journalist, Simon Rockett, Senior Manager for Risk Services at Atradius, David Slater, Director of Trade at KPMG and Aaron Bailey, Client Director at Aon.

During the event our speakers reviewed the economic and political environment, how the current environment is impacting investment and whether global businesses see the UK as a place in which to invest and grow. They also looked to 2019 and beyond, what are the key challenges for business in 2019, how will Brexit impact the UK currently seen as the ‘gateway to the EU’ and how can regions improve their attractiveness to foreign investment.
