UKRN & WIG webinar: The role of regulators in supporting sustainable economic growth

We are delighted to be partnering again with our colleagues at The Whitehall & Industry Group (WIG) for this online expert panel webinar.

Spaces are limited, but registration is free: register here

In November 2023 the UK Government opened a consultation on “Smarter Regulation: Regulating for Growth” seeking to more clearly define and build on the role of regulators in promoting economic growth across the country.

As the consultation states “Economic growth delivers better outcomes for all of society: it helps to address the challenges of the cost-of-living crisis, ensure businesses continue to start, grow and thrive and continue the UK’s role as a world leader.”

Successfully supporting economic growth of course will require regulators to collaborate ever more closely with organisations across the sectors. With this in mind WIG is delighted to once again partner with the UK Regulators Network (UKRN) for this panel webinar.

Log in live to hear expert insights and share your thoughts on topics including:

  • The implications of defining economic growth as ‘sustainable’, and what this will mean in practise for regulators across different industries 
  • How regulators can work with key stakeholders within their remits, to effectively balance the growth duty with other statutory duties or objectives
  • How expanding the growth duty to more regulators could enable enhanced cross-sector collaboration and long-term thinking to address barriers to growth
