Bank of England East Midlands Deputy Agent, Pamela Wright, revealed as Nottingham City Business Club guest speaker in July

Pamela Wright, deputy agent for the East Midlands at the Bank of England, will be the guest speaker at the Nottingham City Business Club event taking place on Friday 20 July 2018 when she will provide an update on the UK economy.

Now that the Monetary Policy Committee has proved that it can increase interest rates, following 10 years of reluctance to do so, the question is will the outlook for inflation require them to raise rates further?  Pam will also look at the prospects for growth in the UK economy amidst the Brexit uncertainties.

Pamela Wright is no stranger to Nottingham.  She was appointed as Deputy Agent for the East Midlands in March 2010 after being Deputy Agent in Northern Ireland for six and a half years and following two years working in Monetary Analysis in the Bank’s Head Office. Immediately prior to working at the Bank of England, Pamela was director of Economics and Research at the British Retail Consortium, where she worked for 5 years. Before that, she worked in the commercial property sector as a Senior Investment Analyst.

President of the club, Ian Roberts, said: “We have developed a strong relationship with the Bank of England over recent years and I know many of our members enjoy the regular roundtable briefings which we intend to continue. As businesses in our city continue to face a period of uncertainty I look forward to hearing the Bank’s view on the prospects for both the national and local economy.”

“I’m really pleased to have the opportunity to speak at NCBC again,” added Pamela. “On past occasions, I’ve had some interesting questions from a very engaged audience.”

Nottingham City Business Club was established in 1924, with its membership comprising of senior representatives of the local business community. The club is sponsored by national law firm Buckles, who have an office in Nottingham city centre.
