The input and impact indicators on trade and investment as set out in our departmental business plan.


The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) business plan, which is updated on a monthly basis, sets out several indicators on trade and investment. We chose these indicators to help the public to judge whether our policies and reforms are having the effect they want. They’re split into ‘input’ indicators on how public money is spent, and ‘impact’ indicators on the results we’re trying to achieve.
