The Economic Panel at the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce Annual Business & Economic Conference 2019 identified some real reasons why the region should be optimistic in challenging times.

Despite the political and economic uncertainty, the West Midlands has major strengths in its business networks and collaboration. However, the region needs to be mindful of the shortage of key infrastructure projects.

The skills in the region should also be recognised. The tech revolution is an opportunity and with the benefit of the University of Warwick and Coventry University based in the region, we are enhancing and securing our skills in this sector, and others, for the future.
