DIRECTOR INVITED TO DISCUSS LOCAL BUSINESS ECONOMY WITH MONETARY POLICY COMMITTEE MEMBER

Afford Bond Director, Gary Greer, was last week invited to meet one of the members of the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC).

The roundtable meeting was led by Dr Gertjan Vlieghe who will serve a second three-year term on the MPC and hold one of 9 votes to decide the future path of UK monetary policy.

Director Gary Greer said: “The group discussed many of the decisions being made at the Bank of England that have a significant effect upon the country’s economic well being.”

"Dr Vlieghe is renowned for providing a valuable and effective contribution to the monetary policy through his deep understanding of the UK economy.

"In the North-West, it is vital our business leaders work together over the coming months as our regional economy continues to flourish, with many businesses, including professional services, going from strength to strength,” said Gary Greer.

Governor of the Bank of England, Mark Carney’s now famous group are very much interested in how UK interest rates impact upon regional businesses, and despite a period of political volatility, to understand how the North-West has continued to prosper following the Leave vote - although many commentators predicted a significant decline.
