Topic: Unlocking Britain: Recovery and renewal after COVID-19

Thursday, 13 August 2020 via Zoom

Bim Afolami, Conservative MP for Hitchin and Harpenden, will be talking about his report, Unlocking Britain: Recovery and renewal after COVID-19, which looks at ways in which Britain’s economy can recover after the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Bim explains: “After the COVID-19 pandemic, Britain’s economy will need to recover and rebuild. As we move out of the initial phase of the public health crisis and begin reopening our economy, it is important that we drive not only recovery but also transformative growth and address some of our areas of historic weakness.

“There is appetite in government for fresh thinking on how we do this and I hope that my report, compiled in consultation with leading business people and economists, can play a part in those discussions.”

biz4Biz Awards 2020 cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic

biz4Biz Awards cancelled due to coronavirus concerns

We are acutely aware of the increasing number of people affected by the coronavirus currently and that the UK’s epidemic could follow the same course as Italy and other EU countries. As a consequence, the biz4Biz board has decided to cancel the Awards judging for week commencing the 23 March and the gala dinner on the 15 May 2020.

We will keep a very close eye over the coming weeks and months as to the likely outcome and effect of this virus and will announce in May our intention to provide alternative dates. We trust that you fully understand the reasons for our decision and despite the disappointment, the health and safety of all those involved, is of paramount importance to biz4Biz.

We appreciate the superb support from a record number of nominees this year and we ask you to kindly consider your ongoing support for the biz4Biz Awards, when it is safe to do so.

Brexit: 30 truths about leaving the EU on WTO terms

On Monday 7th January, Global Britain & Labour Leave are publishing “30 Truths About Leaving On WTO Terms”. The report rebuts – with documented evidence – Project Fear’s scare stories and argues that the best Brexit endpoint would be the Canada style free trade deal offered by Donald Tusk, covering the whole UK. To achieve that, the publication says we need to embrace leaving the EU on WTO terms which provide a “safe haven”.

Rising commercial property prices

Following the collapse of the financial services sector in 2007, office blocks across the land became empty as businesses closed. Simultaneously the demand for homes became a major agenda item for the Conservative Party. Changes to Permitted Development Rights (PDR) were considered necessary to deal with unused office space and assist with providing residential opportunities instead.
