EMCC: Bank of England forum

19 September, 8:00 am - 9:30 am

Chamber Logo

The Bank of England is keen to hear local businesses’ observations about a number of aspects affecting firms day-to-day.  These might include late payment issues, rising inflation, business rates, access to finance, taxation, and cash flow issues, together with the likely impact of Brexit.

Chamber members invited

The Bank of England is visiting Chesterfield to gauge current levels of business confidence.  Chamber members are therefore invited to an informal breakfast where localised operating conditions will be discussed.

What’s involved?

Of course, there is a backdrop of prolonged investment uncertainty after an inconclusive General Election.  Against this, the Bank is keen to listen to local business’ observations on a number of day-to-day issues. These might include late payment, rising inflation, business rates, access to finance, taxation and cashflow, together with the likely impact of Brexit.

Anecdotal feedback at meetings such as these helps to complement the intelligence supplied by the Chamber’s economic research.  Emerging issues arising from these discussions are fed into the Monetary Policy Committee, which sets the monthly interest-rates affecting us all.

Further information and registration

Taking place in Staveley, the meeting is hosted by AVK UK Ltd., a prominent local manufacturer of valves and fittings to the gas and water industries.  For further details, please contact the Chamber’s Policy Team on 01246 212533.  Alternatively, register now.
