BSA submission to Inclusive Growth Commission highlights key role of business services industry

4 Jan 2017

The BSA has offered its submission to the Inclusive Growth Commission on how to ensure communities across the UK benefit from economic growth. The Commission is chaired by former BBC Economics Editor, Stephanie Flanders and seeks to devise new models for place-based growth, which include the widest range of people.

Devolution, public-sector commissioning, skills and the Industrial Strategy are all central to the BSA’s submission. Accounting for 8% of the UK’s economic output and three million jobs across the country, the business services industry has an important role to play in the development of inclusive growth.
