The Birmingham Economic Review is an annual publication written by the University of Birmingham City-REDI in partnership with the GBCC.

This year’s report will provide a comprehensive analysis of the city’s economy as it emerges from the coronavirus pandemic into a period of high inflation and uncertainty caused by the energy crisis, and actionable measures that businesses and stakeholders from across the city-region can take to adapt, foster resilience, and grow in this challenging environment.

The Birmingham Economic Review will assess the city’s capabilities for innovation and adaptation, the potential of its resident workforce, the major transport and infrastructure projects on the horizon, how we can achieve inclusive and more ecologically sustainable growth in economic recovery, and opportunities ahead to enhance the attractiveness of the city to visitors and investors.

The 2022 review will reflect on another challenging year for many businesses following a series of crises, including the pandemic, Brexit and now the war in Ukraine. It will also consider priorities and opportunities for levelling up not least on the back of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

The review will provide world-class, data-driven academic insights and experienced advice from some of the city’s most prominent business leaders as to how the region and its businesses can seize new and emerging opportunities on the horizon.

This launch event will feature an overview of the main findings of the report, followed by a high profile panel of business, policy and political leaders providing their views on the city-region and the findings of the research. They will then participate in a Q&A discussion with the audience.

Chair: Deborah Leary OBE D.Univ,FRSA,CCMI, President, Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce
