How the prospects for the UK economy are looking brighter beyond Q1 2021

In this webcast, Howard Archer, Chief Economic Advisor to the EY ITEM Club and Mark Gregory, EY UK Chief Economist, provide an overview of the EY ITEM Club Winter Forecast.

In this webcast we look at the significant developments since our last forecast, and the mixed implications for the UK economy and outlook, including:

  • How did the economy hold up in Q4 2020, in the face of the English lockdown and other tightened restrictions?
  • What impact will the rollout of COVID vaccinations, new lockdown measures, and the changed relationship with the EU have on growth?
  • Will the UK avoid a double-dip recession? What are the prospects beyond Q1 2021?
