The ONS Economic Forum is an event aimed at analysts, business economists, media, and academic users, to provide an opportunity to discuss issues relating to the measurement of the economy and the range of ONS economic statistics.
The Economic Forums are now being scheduled to coincide with the publication of the Economic Quarterly Review. This event will give you the opportunity to hear about in-depth analysis of key economic issues and updates on transformation projects for economic statistics at ONS.
We are keen to tailor the ONS Economic Forum agenda to the issues that are of most interest to you. If you have suggestions for topics to be covered at this or at a future ONS Economic Forum, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Similarly if you have any questions about economic statistics, you can email these to the same address and we shall answer them as soon as possible.
