The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) is urgently urging politicians to take measures to boost economic growth in the UK.

The BCC's action plan, presented in their report titled 'The Power Of British Business: A Framework For The Future,' outlines 16 key policy requests in areas such as business planning, apprenticeship levy flexibility, UK-EU cooperation, and energy grid upgrades. After experiencing economic shocks over the past three years, BCC research reveals that the majority of businesses are not increasing their investments, with inflation and interest rates causing concerns. The BCC emphasizes the importance of collaboration between businesses and politicians, calling for a pragmatic approach to foster economic growth while ensuring that public sector projects do not hinder private investment. Shevaun Haviland, the Director General of the BCC, underscores the need for action and clarity from politicians to support British businesses in the current environment.
