The inbox of the board room directors of “Global Britain’s” top companies is full! Their priorities are pressing. Short-term, they include:
An open economy; Safe travel; Economic recovery from Covid-19
Longer term the big issues are:
Climate change & COP26 Glasgow in November; Transition to net zero; Capturing the opportunity of going green
And as if that were not enough, here’s a taste of what else is on the desks of business leaders in the UK:
Creating a modern digital trade ecosystem - the call to action; Legal reform to digitise trade documentation, i.e. bills of exchange, bills of lading, promissory notes; UK trade strategy, including: Trade for All strategy, namely WTO, China and CPTPP; Tackling the ballooning trade finance gap, the case for reform of the regulatory framework, role of the UK; Sustainability – using the UN SDGs as a framework to build back better and level up the UK
How to make sense of such a packed agenda?!
Chris Southworth, Secretary-General at the International Chamber of Commerce UK has a lot to say that is important, even crucial, for business people, wherever they happen to be, if their markets of focus include the UK.
