WTA Chairman’s Update #9

Section: Letter from the Chairman / WTA Blog
9 August 2021 | WTA Chairman’s Update #9

Dear WTA members, observers and friends:

We’re hopefully coming out of the other side of the pandemic. There may be more lockdowns to come, but as the vaccine take up improves I hope we can put the last 18 months behind us and get the economic recovery at the front of the agenda.

Here in the UK, we’ve found out that the cost of the pandemic to taxpayers is around £400 billion so far. Throughout the last year, all we’ve heard is the lazy assertion that taxes will have to go up to pay for it. But we know that’s not the case – we need politicians to show spending restraint and focus on economic growth.

There will be many other challenges in your countries. Whatever those challenges are, our organisations are needed now as much as ever. So let’s keep swapping ideas and sharing experiences. There’s some fantastic work going on across the world and we can all learn from one another.
