Introducing the Business Council

Business needs a fresh relationship with Government working together in real partnership to fix our economic challenges, seize opportunities and build an economy that works for all: one that is fit for the future. 

We’re listening to leading businesses about issues such as sustainable growth, productivity, people and work, and innovation.

That is why we have launched a national campaign – Where Business Belongs – to invite businesses to join us as we build on our partnership with government to seek out opportunities for a better more sustainable Britain.

As part of this campaign, we have launched a new Business Council, to convene and discuss the major trends and challenges facing business and industry to guide our policy work.

This is targeted at large companies and institutions who want representation rooted in their local communities and the ability to shape the national debate. Members will also have access to a unique blend of benefits and services at a national level as well as membership of their relevant UK or international Chamber.

Future of the Economy manifesto

The stakes for business for the next government could not be higher. Firms of all sizes and sectors crave certainty on which to base their investment and growth plans; to make decisions on hiring staff, creating new products or selling in fresh markets. 

It is crucial that politicians listen to their concerns and our new government – of whatever party – hits the ground running with meaningful action. 

This report sets out five priorities for immediate action to put in place the right policies and structures that will turn the fly wheel of the economy, so that business can step up and make the best of these opportunities.
