Our Business Manifesto
Chamber Business Manifesto 2019
Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce launched its Business Manifesto for 2019 on Friday 25 January 2019, outlining the main policy objectives and campaigns for businesses in the two counties, at an exclusive launch event at Worcestershire County Cricket Club.
Building upon a turbulent twelve months, this year’s manifesto is focused on the following themes: Skills, Global Trade, Infrastructure, Connectivity, The Cost of Doing Business, and Supporting Businesses to Stay and Grow.
Nationally businesses have experienced delays in parliament, with the Prime Minster’s Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration being rejected earlier in 2019 and facing a vote of no confidence in her own party. Locally, low unemployment and the national skills shortage continue to challenge businesses alongside concerns regarding Brexit and unreliable connectivity.
The manifesto highlights these issues to raise awareness at Westminster to work towards solutions, to ensure that Herefordshire and Worcestershire remain a great place to do business.

These priorities have been narrowed down following our interactions with over 4000 businesses and as a result of feedback from over 600 businesses who took part in our Quarterly Economic Survey.
The Business Manifesto aims to tackle these issues and to work towards solutions. As the voice of business in the two counties, the Chamber will relate these concerns to politicians and work to influence government, locally and nationally, on the key priorities needed to make Herefordshire and Worcestershire an even better place to do business.
