Some of the UK’s top economists are to address challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic in The Press and Journal’s first digital business breakfast tomorrow.
Graeme Roy, director at the Fraser of Allander Institute, will join Deloitte senior economist Debapratim De, and Kevin Connor, area director for Scotland and senior health and safety consultant at RBS for the one-hour session which will explore what recovery looks like.
Mr Roy said: “Four key factors will determine the speed of recovery.
“First, it is vital we avoid a second wave of infections.
“Second, government needs to develop a more effective plan for the safe return of schools to let parents return to work.
“We must get the timing right on the lifting of financial support measures and the lifting of restrictions.
“Finally, much will depend on how confidence can be restored in the months to come, across a range of sectors.”
The online event has been organised by The P&J and The Courier in association with Deloitte and RBS.
