A familiar face at No.10

Rishi Sunak, PM

With the appointment of Rishi Sunak to the top government seat, Chris Fletcher, Policy Director at Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, reviews how this will affect Chamber members: “We would obviously like to congratulate the new Prime Minister and, hopefully, we can now look forward to a period of much-needed stability and serious focus on tackling the challenges that businesses and people are facing on a daily basis. After the abject failure of the previous PM and the last-but-one Chancellor when they created a maelstrom of costly havoc in the national economy, many see the new PM as having a much better handle on what is needed to start to address some of the many problems people are facing.

“It is vital though that all the focus isn’t taken up by market reactions. Whilst they are important to the economy there are more fundamental issues that need addressing around skills, infrastructure, rising costs, energy and net zero that have felt, recently, like they have become secondary matters. It is however these day to day issues that most people care about and want urgent action on. The honeymoon period for the PM will be brief and hopefully we will see a positive plan quickly produced to get this country, its businesses and people, back on track in a fair and sensible way .”

In other news, GMCC, Families and Babies and eBay for Charity held an event for charities, social enterprises and Community Interest Companies recently. The exclusive event, which was completely free of charge, was designed to give advice about utilising the eBay platform to help generate more income at a challenging time. The speakers were Elaine Edwards, Chair of Trustees at Families and Babies, Amelia Buttery and Martin Fahy from eBay and Bob Carter, who has previously worked with a range of charities including KidsCan, Bleakholt Animal Sanctuary and The Princes Trust. The lunch event was sponsored by eBay for Charity. The speakers from eBay for Charity gave an insight into how the platform can benefit charities and social enterprises.
