A free online webinar event will take place on Monday, June 22 at 2pm to set out initial recovery plans whilst providing practical advice and support.

The webinar will include a panel discussion with Council’s Party Group leaders and Chief Executive Suzanne Wylie and will be facilitated by John Mulgrew (Ulster Business Editor).

Lord Mayor of Belfast, Alderman Frank Mc Coubrey said: “The economic impact of Covid-19 on city businesses and our economy will be significant and as such we want to be able to provide relevant and tailored advice during these challenging times.

“It is clear that businesses will need to change and innovate in our post Covid economic environment. In order to do this, businesses require both support and ambition in order to focus on recovery efforts and build on something more meaningful for the future.”

“Our business community is vital to our city’s overall success which is why we are encouraging businesses to register for this webinar, ask the questions you want answered and understand that our focus is on helping you rebuild and recover for the future”

Questions for the panel can be submitted in advance and you can register your attendance here
