Bank of England among speakers at VRA’s Future Economics webinar

By / 4 months ago / Latest News / No Comments

The subject of ‘Future Economics’ is to be tackled by speakers including the Bank of England in a Vehicle Remarketing Association (VRA) webinar taking place next month.

The VRA’s ‘Future Economics’ webinar is being held at 10am on Thursday 15 April

Being held at 10am on Thursday 15 April, the webinar will include an overview from Glynn Jones, deputy agent at the Bank of England, of the latest monetary policy report and of expectations in terms of growth, unemployment and inflation.

Also, Steve Le Bas, audit partner at BDO, will present on his organisation’s latest Motor 150 report, which looks in detail at the UK’s largest dealer groups, benchmarking them historically and looking at their performance in the years ahead.

It’s the latest in the VRA’s New Normal Briefing series of webinars, which have been created to provide members with essential information and guidance, covering subjects ranging from EVs to the impact of Brexit.

Philip Nothard, chair at the VRA, said: “There is probably not an area of remarketing that hasn’t been touched by the pandemic but what comes next remains something of a blank page. Our aim with these webinars is to fill in some of that white space.

“What we want to do is to provide our members with useful and even essential information they can use to plan strategically as we emerge from the coronavirus crisis over the coming months.”

The webinars take place on the third Thursday of every month and it is planned that they will continue until at least June, when it is hoped that the VRA will be able to resume at least some face-to-face meetings.
