Event details

Guest Speaker: Mauricio Armellini,  Agent for the North East, Bank of England

As part of our Network Leaders series join us for a networking lunch where we will be joined by Mauricio Armellinui, Bank of England.

Mauricio Armellini, The Bank of England Agent North East, will give a topical, lively presentation about a vital subject for all local businesses – the outlook for economic growth in the next year.

Mauricio will highlight the Bank of England’s current policy for interest rates which affect inflation and productivity, and the forecast for economic growth which particularly impacts local businesses, from sole traders to multi nationals.

Before joining the Bank of England Mauricio was chief economist at the North East LEP. He took a leading role in setting up the LEP’s Strategic Economic Plan, designed to shape economic growth across the region.

He has been a member of the Government Economic Service since 2008, leading teams of analysts in areas of key ministerial attention such as skills and pensions. He moved to the North East in 2005 from his native Uruguay to pursue doctoral studies in economics at Durham University..

Mauricio is a well-known figure in the business community and a lively, engaging speaker, with unbeatable up to date knowledge of North East business performance. He will be happy to answer questions from Service Network businesses about their concerns and queries relevant to his role at the Bank of England.
