We work with the UK government, international legislators, the business community and policymakers to help UK businesses compete effectively. Every department of government influences the prosperity and profitability of business, but the impact of proposed legislation may not be fully understood by those who devise it. The CBI is therefore vital to the entire business community because it can mobilise opinion and successfully bring influence to bear on government.
We succeed because we are the only organisation with the resources and expertise to cover such a range of business policy issues and have access where it counts: Westminster, Whitehall, across the English regions, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, the EU and beyond. No other business organisation has such an extensive network of contacts with government ministers, MPs, civil servants, opinion formers and the media.
