Brabners, in conjunction with Mersey Maritime, would be delighted if you could join us for our forthcoming panel event, The Urban Port in the 21st Century Supply Chain Framework taking place on Thursday 12 June in Liverpool.

We are hosting this panel discussion as part of the IFB's Maritime, Logistics and Energy programme.  Focusing on developments that react to and shape the latest changes to the national and global supply chain framework and create logistic solutions clustered around infrastructure development; this panel event will debate what factors are involved in developing the supply chain infrastructure to shape logistics solutions for the 21st century.

The panel will consider policy and direction at the European Investment Bank that has led to significant investment in port infrastructure in the last decade; the UK Government Transport Policy; the implications of the latest research and government white papers; the global changes in the shipping industry and the implications of the development of the Panama Canal; and the L2 container terminal being developed at Port of Liverpool.

Can we shape a logistics infrastructure that gives the nation a competitive advantage? This discussion seeks to create a better understanding of the existing solutions available,  the opportunities provided by new port and infrastructure developments and, looking to the future, how better solutions can be created, how clusters can be initiated and formed and how a joined up approach from all stakeholders involved  in the supply chain process can deliver this.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions, share with the speakers and other attendees your own views and experiences, and to debate the issues.

 

The Panel
Our confirmed panellists include:

  • Gary Hodgson, Group Port Operations Director, Peel Ports
  • Jonathan Taylor, Vice President and Management Committee Member, European Investment Bank
  • Mike Garratt, Managing Director, MDS Transglobal

Who should attend?

Brabners LLP, Horton House, Exchange Flags, Liverpool L2 3YL

Brabners LLP, in conjunction with RBS, are delighted once again to welcome Andrew McLaughlin, Head of Communications, Chief Economist for The Royal Bank of Scotland to speak at our annual Economic Briefing at our offices in Horton House, Exchange Flags, Liverpool.

The UK economy showed clear signs of recovery during 2013 and with all major industry sectors and regions now showing positive growth trends the recovery looks set to continue. Current projections are that the UK is set to become the fifth largest economy in the world before 2020.

Inflation appears to be under control for now, but interest rates are likely to start rising gradually in the next six months in order to keep inflation around target in the longer term. Plus the housing market remains an important source of risk for the UK economy, together with possible global shocks and relatively weak productivity growth.

Andrew will review what has changed since last year’s Economic Briefing and share his views on the UK and international economic prospects.

About Andrew
Andrew holds a first class honours degree in Economics and Politics and a PhD, for which he was awarded the Walter Bagehot prize for best UK dissertation in the field of government and public administration. Before joining the RBS in 2001 Andrew spent three years with Ernst and Young working in Corporate Finance.

He is a Chairman of The Prince's Trust Council in Scotland and a member of the UK Advisory Board.
