Macroeconomic policy plays a crucial role in shaping the business environment. The IoD calls for fiscal and monetary policy regimes that bring stability to the economy, in order to support the ambitions of entrepreneurs and directors leading corporations of all sizes. We also encourage policymakers to enhance the nation’s agility and productivity to secure long-term economic growth prospects, by delivering an industrial strategy that sustains the competitiveness of the UK’s regions and businesses in the face of global, demographic, and technological change.
We achieve this by working closely with our members, particularly through economic conditions surveys, alongside obtaining insights from policymakers, academics, and business leaders from across the country. This allow us to support and champion the pivotal role of directors – and their businesses – in the economy via research reports, media outputs, and parliamentary engagements on pressing macroeconomic issues.
