She says this is the kind of support and certainty that business and commerce needs in order to continue growth and provide the economic activity that is necessary for employment.

Dr Ali says this as we all have just come out of the COVID-19 pandemic and have achieved a full year of normal business for 2022.

She says they look forward to working with both Ministers in their usual partnership and approach to defining and maintaining government policies that affect business and commerce.

The Chamber is also looking forward to hosting the Ministers at the earliest opportunity, for a session with their members.
