The Financial Services Trade and Investment Board has published its second progress report.
At Budget 2013, the government created the Financial Services Trade and Investment Board (FSTIB), a strategic body chaired by HM Treasury, which brings together government departments and industry. The board is tasked with attracting inward investment, promoting external trade and removing barriers for the UK’s financial services sector.
Two years on, the board has made significant progress in delivering those objectives and the government welcomes its second progress report which announces: the progress made in the priority areas for financial services trade and investment identified in last year’s report and outlines the board’s plans to deliver more in the future through existing and new initiatives.
