BCC Election Manifesto: Brexit And Beyond

The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) has today (Tuesday 02nd May 2017) launched Brexit and Beyond, the Chamber Network manifesto for General Election 2017.

The Chamber manifesto calls for the new government, which will be responsible for negotiating the terms of the UKs departure from the European Union, to provide business communities with clear answers to the pragmatic and practical questions around how Brexit will affect their day-to-day operations, including hiring, customs procedures and regulation.

However, business communities across the UK send a very strong message that the election cannot and must not  be about Brexit alone.

The next government must deliver a bold and clear strategy to support economic growth across all regions and nations of the UK. Action is needed on a range of domestic fronts, including improving the competitiveness of the UKs business environment, upgrading physical and digital infrastructure across the country, and supporting local growth.
