Navigating through the ongoing economic and political uncertainty

45 mins Session

With the pandemic and Brexit substantially changing the European economy, what lies ahead?  Will the property market be fundamentally different in a post pandemic world, how will residential housing demand change, will government's record spending during the pandemic lead to a rapid economic recovery, or has it just held back the recessionary wave to come?  Hear insight from one of the  BBC's most recognisable business presenters.
