Policy

Home / Support / Policy

As the leading voice of business for the two counties, the Chamber can support you in getting your views heard and represented locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.

Through feedback from members, work with the British Chambers of Commerce, our ongoing partnership with the Worcestershire and Marches Local Enterprise Partnerships and regular interaction with key decision makers, the Chamber ensures that the interests of local businesses are heard in Westminster, Whitehall and Brussels, whilst maintaining a relentlessly pro-growth mantra that dictates our policy.

We take a multifaceted approach to our policy work, campaigning locally and nationally on a variety of issues that are essential to stimulating local economic growth and creating an environment that is conducive to helping businesses prosper. From issues of fundamental local importance, like infrastructure developments, through to issues of national pertinence, such as dealing with the skills shortages in our workforce, the Chamber is continually pushing business interests that will drive the economic development of the two counties.

As an apolitical member organisation, the interests of our members are of paramount importance to us. The more members engage and communicate with us, the better we will be able to lobby on their behalf. In return, we pledge to maintain a constant dialogue through a variety of mediums; be it our Chamber magazine, Business Direction, or our many member events, we will continually relay messages of importance to our members, whilst remaining ready to listen and respond to any new concerns that they may face.

In addition to this, our regular Area Council meetings, quarterly meetings with our local Bank of England representative and the Quarterly Economic Survey provide us with enlightening insights into the fortunes of the business community, ensuring that we are always in tune with what our members need. It is this local knowledge that allows us to produce larger policy documents, such as our Business Manifesto, a pre-general election document which sets out our policy goals and pledges for the period of the next administration.
