Following today’s Spring Budget statement by the Chancellor, Miles Celic, Chief Executive Officer, TheCityUK, said,
“The Chancellor’s focus on embracing innovation, boosting business investment and driving growth right across the UK is promising. Incentivising local growth and investment and building skills through the new Investment Zones will help to spread greater prosperity and shore up the UK’s international competitiveness in key areas. Our industry will play an important enabling role on this agenda, by facilitating investment over the coming years in line with the Chancellor’s vision for a secure and clean energy future.
“More generally, for the UK to realise its growth ambitions, remain a powerhouse for talent, innovation and investment, and to reaffirm its reputation as a world-leading international financial centre, there must be continued focus on ensuring economic stability and resilience. We look forward to working with the government to realise these goals.”
