1. The latest BCC Coronavirus Business Impact Tracker reveals that most businesses would be ready to restart their operations within 3 weeks.
We’ve set out what businesses need from a restart of the UK economy as the government is expected to publish its roadmap out of lockdown on Sunday. BCC President Baroness Ruby McGregor-Smith has written an open letter to the Prime Minister to set out key considerations facing businesses across the UK. Ruby’s letter sets out an integrated approach, the first step of our restart, renew and rebuild work, as the government prepares to ease initial lockdown restrictions. While the fight against the virus must remain the top priority, the communication of a carefully phased approach to lifting lockdown must begin immediately if we are to harness the public health and economic benefits, both now and in the future. https://lnkd.in/dAP6K2J
