The COVID-19 pandemic has posed enormous challenges for policy makers around the world. Protecting public health whilst preserving jobs and businesses has required unprecedented action from governments and regulators.
As lockdowns are starting to be eased, we consider the longer-term implications of the pandemic for board members and senior decision makers in companies with UK business interests as well as those involved in UK policy-making and politics.
