Today on the ConservativeHome online fringe: Truss on trade, Donelan on universities, Zahawi on the digital revolution

4 Oct

Welcome to Day Two of the ConservativeHome online fringe programme. After a stonking Day One, that you can read about in Sunday’s papers, we’re back with six more events ranging from trade to universities, from electric cars to global education, from driving productivity to medical cannabis innovation.

NB today’s events will be broadcast on the Party Conference site *and* on Zoom – so anyone without access to the former can view at the latter. Please find the Zoom links for each event enclosed below.
