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.
