Sets how the government and the professional and business services sector will work together to keep the UK ahead of the global competition. We want the UK to be the world-leading hub for these services, with growing exports to overseas markets.
Professional and business services cover a range of services, including:
advertising and corporate communications
recruitment and human resource services
The strategy aims to ensure that the wider economy benefits from the excellence of our professional and business services. It recognises the important role which firms, large and small, all around the country, play in helping other businesses to invest and export. It includes commitments to:
increase access to the high level skills demanded by professional firms
promote professional and business services exports to emerging markets
Government and industry, and in particular the Professional and Business Services Council, are working together to implement this strategy.
