Business Manifesto 2017 - 2020
The Somerset Chamber's Business Manifesto details the main policy objectives and campaigns we believe are at the heart of ensuring we develop and support a vibrant Somerset economy.
This Manifesto has been developed following extensive consultation with our members and the business community through surveys, Council and Bank of England meetings.
The Manifesto focuses on six fundemantal campaigns:
Working Somerset - Skills & Employment - To have an aspirational workforce with world class skills, that will help grow the competitiveness of Somerset business.
A Global Somerset - International Trade & Movement of Talent - To improve interaction with overseas markets to create new opportunities for Somerset business.
Influential Somerset - Local Focus & Devolution - Think globally, but act locally, with business at the heart of local growth.
Connected Somerset - Infrastructure - To provide our businesses with better access to markets and customers.
Competitive Somerset - Business Growth & Support - To promote Somerset as a vibrant place to do business.
Building a Somerset Legacy - Hinkley Point C - To ensure Somerset has the opportunity to benefit from Hinkley Point C.
