David Stringer-Lamarre, MD of FortisCL and Chairman of the Institute of Directors, London Region, was pleased to attend this event where the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy set out her vision for how government and business can work together in the future.

The Secretary of State said that ‘This government will always back business to the hilt. We will review and reduce business rates. We will finally resolve the scourge of late payments. And we will forge a new trading relationship with the EU – as well as develop free trade agreements with old friends and new partners around the world. We will put in place reforms to keep the UK world-leading in audit, corporate governance and transparency.’ The full text of the speech is available here.
