*UKHotViewsExtra* Autumn Statement 2022: With challenge comes change and opportunity

Autumn Statement 2022 Report Cover (Green with HM Treasury logo)He came. He saw. He softened the blow for the inflation-heavy short-term at least. However, in his Autumn Statement, Chancellor Jeremy Hunt has had to acknowledge that the country’s economic and fiscal woes are set to remain a feature for many more years to come. As a result, he has set in train an array of reviews and actions that are designed to prompt the Government to think differently.

With challenge comes opportunity, including for suppliers to the UK tech market. Hunt has recognised that we can’t keep pumping more and more billions of pounds into our public services, doing things in the same way, but expecting a different result. He is very keen on looking beyond the UK’s shores for examples of best practice, from Singapore to Scandinavia. And he is also a strong believer that technology, if used effectively, can make a difference.

In our latest UKHotViewsExtra – Autumn Statement 2022: With challenge comes change and opportunity, we take a look at some of the areas where Hunt has highlighted a determination to identify a new approach, from the delivery of health and social care, to energy, to innovation, and the opportunities it has the potential to create. We also look at one of the more disappointing areas of the Autumn Statement from our perspective: education.
