Jeremy Hawkins, senior European economist at Econoday, provides an overview of the UK and Europe’s economic landscape two months on from the signing of the UK-EU post-Brexit trade deal and a year from the start of the coronavirus pandemic. He highlights the sectors likely to bounce back more rapidly and those that could struggle to regain lost ground.

What you’ll learn from this episode:

  • The UK and Europe’s 2020 and early 2021 economic performance.
  • Why there is UK optimism for the second half of 2021.
  • The effect of the “stamp duty holiday” on the UK housing market.
  • How the accommodation and food sectors could recover strongly.
  • Impacts on sterling and the euro from vaccine roll-out rates.
