The economy can only grow with the right economic infrastructure to support it. Investment is still needed to ensure the UK’s infrastructure is fit for purpose for the next generation.
When businesses make decisions to invest in a market, the reliability, cost and quality of infrastructure - from roads and airports to the country's energy supply and broadband networks - are major considerations.
To ensure the UK remains an attractive place to invest we need government action now: a new approach to infrastructure with a long-term government vision to tackle planning barriers and reform regulation.
The CBI and its members are working with government on solutions to shape this vision, such as through our Bold Thinking on the UK's roads.
