The CBI consults members when exploring any issue to understand the real-world business impact of policy decisions.
In this instance, the consultation has revealed a need for government and business to work together to raise R&D spend, after it has stagnated at 1.7% of GDP for many years.
Our members are our mandate
The CBI works with members and government to shape policies, mitigate risk and deliver prosperity for all.
Across the UK, the CBI speaks on behalf of 190,000 businesses of all sizes and sectors. The CBI’s corporate members together employ nearly 7 million people, about one third of private sector-employees. With offices in the UK and representation in Brussels, Washington, Beijing and Delhi, the CBI communicates the British business voice around the world.
