Chancellor Rishi Sunak has said “strong investment in public services” will be at the heart of his plans for rebuilding the economy when he sets out his budget next week.

Speaking on BBC One’s Andrew Marr Show, he said he would drive growth by spending on infrastructure, innovation and skills.

But he said he did not have a “magic wand” to make rising costs disappear.

It has been an interesting week in Moscow. I together with colleagues from Maersk and KGH participated in the successful International Customs Forum 2021 (IFC) in Moscow, Russia.

IFC is one of the first international events held IRL post-pandemic, while still under strict rules.

International life is slowly starting to move into the new normal, even though this is done under strict health regulations and new Covid-19 protection restrictions for Moscow and Russia were announced this week.

Moscow is a very special place that I always enjoy. To have a stroll in the Gorky Park just around the corner from our event hotel is indeed a privilege.

A Friday night in Moscow is always a Friday night in a beautiful place. Like seeing this outside my window before going to bed.

Maersk is a big player in Russia. We are now actively through KGH growing our customs business and MCS/CHB services offering in Russia together with the established Maersk organization.

I hope to be back soon.

Up 02am (01.00 Swedish time) to take the first flight from Sheremetyevo to Amsterdam, transfer (with waiting window) to Copenhagen. On a Saturday morning.

My life as globetrotter is hereby officially post-pandemic re-opened
