Breakfast Seminar: A World View of 2023
2023 is already looking challenging. With a number of intersecting crises such as the ongoing war in Ukraine, the rising cost of living, the fight against inflation, the transition to renewable energy and the role of China post-pandemic, the world feels increasingly destabilised. Against this backdrop, making economic predictions is not for the faint-hearted.
In partnership with BKL, we invite you to hear the perspective of leading economist and advisor to the G20, Dennis Snower. He will share his expert outlook for the world in 2023 and what it means for economics, government and society as a whole.
Hosted at BKL offices at 35 Ballards Lane, London N3 1XW (nearest tube is Finchley Central on the Northern Line).
Coffee and breakfast will be served. Guests are welcome from 8am and we ask that you please arrive by 8:30am for a prompt start at 8:45am.
