It’s been a challenging time for everyone over the past few months. As much needed measures to protect the health of the nation have been put in place, the impact of the virus on the health of the economy has intensified. Our partners at the CBI are continuing to keep a close eye on how the pandemic is affecting the economy, and how businesses are faring as we head into another challenging phase.
To help get your voice heard on these issues, it’s more crucial than ever that you participate in their economic surveys. Our partners at the CBI remain in constant dialogue with the Chancellor and government, both on the ongoing economic impact of the virus and in helping to shape the evolution of support packages for businesses, ensuring that they facilitate an effective economic recovery.
