Introducing Black Country 2.0
Our economy now stands at a crossroads and Black Country 2.0 will frame all the Chamber’s activity and support services over the next 12 months and into 2022 as we help members to navigate in these challenging times.
Last year saw significant disruption to how we live and do business with COVID-19 continuing to overshadow many of our plans and operations for some time to come.
For employers and businesses throughout the region, the effects of the COVID-19 emergency and its economic impact are also taking place during a period when the post-Brexit trading landscape is shaping around us. It has never been more important for us to work together, learn from one another and demonstrate to the world that the Black Country remains firmly and resolutely open for business.
Black Country 2.0 is the Chamber’s flagship campaign and rallying cry for businesses to join us to shape and set the business agenda.
The virtural launch will include an overview of Black Country 2.0, its forthcoming activity and feature a range of speakers including:
- Jude Thompson, Chamber President
- Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands Combined Authority
- Corin Crane, Chamber CEO
- Panel Discussion featuring Black Country 2.0’s business partners EBC Group; DiT; FBC Manby Bowdler; Forresters; and MoneyCorp
- DIT and the Government Clean Growth Industry Strategy
