FT starts “The State of Britain” newsletter

May 20, 2024

The Financial Times has launched “The State of Britain,” a newsletter about the United Kingdom’s search for growth, productivity and its place in a changing world.

It will be written by the public policy editor Peter Foster.

The newsletter will help readers navigate Britain’s post-Brexit relationship with the European Union, its largest trading partner. It will also explore policy solutions to the UK’s flatlining productivity, including skills, planning reform and devolution as well as post-Brexit regulation, foreign direct investment and trade. “The State of Britain” replaces the “Britain after Brexit” newsletter.

“Brexit is never ‘done’, but it’s time to move into the next leg of the UK’s journey outside the EU,” said Foster in a statement. “As we head into what promises to be a seismic election year, this newsletter will take a look under the bonnet of the British State.

“The State of Britain’”is available to premium FT subscribers, and will be sent at 5 p.m. UK time every Thursday.
