Shadow BIS Team

Chuka Umunna

Labour is seeking to create a new economy to deliver the jobs and growth of the future - an economy more resilient, competitive and with fairer outcomes,  which enables us to pay our way in an ever more globalised world.

Labour passionately believes that we need more people setting up, leading and working in business. This private sector growth needs to be supported by an active government approach, investing for the long-term and enabling businesses to grow, with this growth more broadly based across sectors, and between and within regions.

Thank you for visiting the website of Labour’s Business, Innovation and Skills team which provides information on our long term policy development, day to day work in Parliament and beyond, and engagement with business and other stakeholders including universities, colleges, trade unions and other organisations.

I very much hope you find this site useful and informative.
