The Mid-Market is a trillion pounds worth of UK’s total Private Sector turnover and ¼ of the jobs created.

Following years of economic downturn, growth has returned, businesses are confident and employment figures are promising. But this burst of success cannot allow us to become complacent. As a nation we should be wary of repeating the mistakes of the past and globally there is still a risk of further shocks to the system.

We need to build an economy that is balanced and sustainable which will create jobs around the country.  A ‘new economy’ is needed which is not over-reliant on one sector or region but which seeks to balance growth throughout the UK.

We believe that the mid-market should be at the heart of plans to put the economy on a more balanced footing.  But today too many British companies cannot fulfil their potential.  To harness the entrepreneurial spirit of our businesses we want the Government to focus on three areas:

Make the most of the UK’s mid-market;
 
Help UK businesses grow internationally and attract inward investment; and
 
Create geographic and sector powerhouses.

To benefit all of the UK, we need a new way forward
