In the run-up to the 2019 General Election, the voice of business needs to be heard at a time of prolonged political instability and investment uncertainty. For this reason, the Chamber has brokered a briefing that enables the business community to directly engage with the candidates for local parliamentary seats on the issues that matter.

Following an address in which each Party will present its own vision of an incoming government’s support for SMEs, businesses will be invited to interact with them in an informal Q&A session to compare their respective positions on a broad range of topical issues.
