Whitehall Dialogue - UK Economic Security and the Challenges of the ‘New Global Economy’

calendarclock - (GMT)

Dr Andrew SentanceA presentation by Dr Andrew Sentance, Senior Economic Adviser, PricewaterhouseCoopers.

The progress of the UK economy now depends on our ability to make our way in a world very different from twenty years ago. The 'new global economy' in which we now operate is being shaped by the emerging powers of China, India and other Asian economies. At the same time, the volatilities inherent in a highly globalised world economy have become more apparent, particularly through the experience of the financial crisis. In his presentation, Dr Andrew Sentance will review the changing global economic scene and discuss how the UK can stabilise and secure its economic livelihood in an increasingly volatile global economic environment.

Dr Andrew Sentance is an experienced business economist who served on the Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee from 2006 until 2011. He has recently joined PricewaterhouseCoopers as their Senior Economic Adviser, where his role is to provide advice to business clients on major strategic and economic issues. Before joining the Bank of England, Andrew was Chief Economist and Head of Environmental Affairs at British Airways and was one of the five senior managers appointed in 2001 to prepare the company's 'Future Size and Shape' turnaround plan. Prior to this, he worked at the CBI, rising to the position of Director of Economic Affairs. While at the CBI, he was a founder member of the Treasury's Panel of Independent Forecasters (the 'seven wise men') established under John Major's Conservative Government. He has also served as Director of the Centre for Economic Forecasting at London Business School. Andrew was educated at Eltham College, Clare College Cambridge and the London School of Economics, where he gained his PhD. He holds a visiting professorship at Royal Holloway, University of London and is a Fellow and former Chairman of the Society of Business Economists.  He is also a part-time Professor of Sustainable Business at Warwick Business School.
