Business Issues

Securing a private sector-led recovery is essential to delivering long-term sustainable growth in the UK. To achieve this we have identified a number of business issues where action is needed to ensure firms are best able to compete effectively and create employment.

The business issues you can see below fit within the broad themes of delivering economic growth and balanced public finances, building a flexible high-skilled labour market, reforming public services and working towards a sustainable future.

In all these areas we will work with businesses to draw up policy proposals, highlight where current policies are working, campaign against unnecessary regulations and identify initiatives that can best help employers take advantage of business opportunities.
