Watch: New Statesman and O2 webinar on how technology can power the economic recovery

Matt Warman MP, Felicity Burch, Jon Corner and Mark Evans discuss the role of digital connectivity in the coronavirus recovery strategy.

By NS Events

With productivity playing a crucial role in driving the UK’s economic success, better broadband and mobile connectivity are central to the coronavirus recovery strategy.

In October, the New Statesman hosted an online panel discussion and live Q&A, sponsored by O2. The event, chaired by former New Statesman deputy editor Jon Bernstein, brought together parliamentary under secretary of state for digital infrastructure Matt Warman MP, CBI director of innovation and digital Felicity Burch, Salford city council CDO Jon Corner, and CEO of O2 Mark Evans. The panel explored how how digital connectivity can play a central role in the coronavirus recovery strategy.
