Businesses help Beckett build policy

President of the Board of Trade, Margaret Beckett, announced recently that six new business-led groups will work with the Government to develop policy to improve Britain’s business performance.

Beckett said “As part of my Competitiveness United Kingdom Initiative, I am keen to build the views of business into my industrial policy”.

The six working parties will help address key areas of relative weakness in the United Kingdom’s competitive performance.

They will focus on specific ways in which government and business can work together to improve investment performance, the pursuit of innovation, the use of best practice, adapting to the information age, developing skills and maximising competitiveness in Europe.
