IED Webinar:  A deal is done: now what about the post Brexit position of our economies, businesses and economic development funding

11 Feb 2021 - Online via Zoom 2-3.30pm

In follow up to our webinar on “Brexit: how are economic development professionals preparing for life post-31st December 2020?’ (watch again at we will be taking a closer look at the post-Brexit agreement on trade and other issues which was agreed just a week before the transition period between the UK and the EU came to an end. Whilst this avoided the disruption of a no-deal Brexit in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, there remain questions to be answered on funding, including the UK Shared Prosperity Fund and the impact on business engagement in economic development. In September 2020, the UK government introduced the UK Internal Market Bill, which will give Ministers the power to make payments to any person across the UK for the purposes of economic development, including directly in the devolved nations, in areas of devolved competence. In the Spending Review in November 2020, the UK government set out that it will use these new powers to deliver the Shared Prosperity Fund and explained that this fund would operate on a UK-wide framework. It committed to publish further details of the scheme in the Spring.

Hear an exclusive presentation from the IED and member organisations to inform delegates on the current and potential landscape, followed by a Q&A panel discussion. This webinar is essential for anyone working in economic development and regeneration, public, private and third sector.

More details on speakers will be announced soon.
