What does the Professional & Business Services Council do?
The purpose of the Council is to act as the main independent forum for the Professional & Business Services (PBS) sector and the UK Government and to promote the long-term success of the sector in the UK and globally and accordingly, continue to enhance the sector’s symbiotic relationship and contribution to the UK economy
The aim of the Council is to foster an environment in which the PBS sector is able to thrive, domestically and globally – increasing PBS exports, investment and employment. In doing so, the Council will engage with the UK government on the key issues and opportunities facing the sector, supporting the success of the sector’s SMEs and provide insight into future directions.
The primary objectives of the Council are to:
- Inform and challenge the UK government on key issues facing the PBS sector and those aspects of the wider economy where PBS expertise has particular relevance;
- Create visibility for PBS firms and organisations of government policy and intended direction;
- Identify clear priorities to contribute to wider UK Government policy areas and initiatives.
