Over recent years, we have intensified our policy work on behalf of our member companies, in response to both their increased concerns about the impact of government policy-making on their business and increased receptivity by government to our views and representations.
This work includes:
- Direct, formal representation of the view and concerns of our member companies to Government on policy issues that are particularly important to them, ranging from taxation, aviation, pensions and immigration to financial regulation, Europe and TTIP (click here for more information);
- On-going dialogue with Government on a broader range of issues to ensure that they take full account of our members' interests in the development of government policies;
- Expanding series of forums with industry experts and US, UK and EU policy-makers to discuss policy issues ranging from energy, healthcare and the environment to intellectual property, cyber threats, employment law and financial services legislation.
We have also been playing – and continue to play -- a leadership role, with government and the business community, in promoting the prospective EU-US Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (TTIP). This includes the launch of a new EU-US Trade & Investment Forum; roadshows in various regional business centers (in addition to our extensive programming in London and New York); and the establishment and staffing of an All-Party Parliamentary Group in London.
