Emerging stronger, vol. 3: 54 days of a sovereign United Kingdom - what now for the UK and the EU?

54 days of a sovereign United Kingdom – what now for the UK and the EU? After years of debating, delaying and discussing, Britain finally left the European with a trade deal on 1 January 2021. But what now? What is next for the United Kingdom, and where is it heading? In the aftermath of a hard pandemic-hit and Brexit infused recession, what are we to make of its new relationship to its greatest neighbour, the European Union? This, against a backdrop of a United States in turbulence, and years of distancing itself, and a rising China. How do we emerge stronger?

Welcome to our third event in the “Emerging stronger” series, featuring business leaders and opinion makers from both sides of the North Sea.

The discussions are moderated by Nik Gowing, Director and Founder of Thinking the Unthinkable and former BBC news anchor.

Charlotte Erkhammar, CEO at Kreab Group
James Sproule, Chief Economist at Handelsbanken PLC
