Economist Austin Hughes on the capacity of the Irish economy to address significant challenges in coming years.

The MBA Association South East Chapter will host an evening seminar with Economist Austin Hughes on Thursday, November 28th in the Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT),  where he will discuss the theme of ‘Life after Brexit’. The event will be co-ordinated in collaboration with the WIT Business School and KBC Business Banking.

The lecture will examine the extent to which Brexit might be seen as a symptom as well as a cause of widespread economic difficulties at present and will review the capacity of the Irish economy to address some significant challenges in coming years.

His focus is on issues affecting the Irish and European economies. He produces a number of closely followed Consumer Sentiment Surveys and is also a regular contributor to media on economic and financial topics.
