SENIOR executives from 25 businesses engaged in international trade gathered at the offices of law firm EMW in Knowlhill  to hear Nick Parsons, head of global strategy and foreign exchange at National Australia Bank, give his views on the outlook for the UK economy and interest rates.
 
He forecast a rise in Bank of England base rate to 2% as world commodity prices soar and the domestic economy remains sluggish due to the downwards effect of high personal debt on consumer demand.
 
Sponsored by EMW, Clydesdale Bank and UKTI, the forum aims to give exporters the opportunity to share experiences with like minded businesses.
