Dame Carolyn Fairbairn, CBI Director-General, said:
“The Prime Minister’s heartfelt commitment to backing British business could not be more necessary or welcome. It’s only through thriving enterprise that our economy will bounce back from this crisis.
“The Prime Minister made it very clear he shares this view and that his door is always open to the CBI and business. In return, firms will do all they can to help our country recover. They will step up to support communities, create new jobs for young people and accelerate the UK’s path to net zero. This is a time for the partnership of a generation between business and government. Our door too is always open.
“This next month will be a test of this partnership, bringing a collision of the twin challenges of lockdown and the end game on the UK’s trade deal with the EU. Let’s use this time working side-by-side to protect jobs, livelihoods and communities across the country.”
