Welcome to the Business Blog

Welcome to my page, where I will be discussing the major issues of the day, breaking new stories and making sense of the key trends.

The economy is now in recovery and business has an important role to play in the future prosperity of the country.

But with some banks still in the dock and the cost-of-living a concern for a lot of people, many question how businesses can play their part as the UK climbs away from recession.

Business has become a vital part of the political debate, with each of the parties battling over who has the best policies in the run up to the General Election. How can politicians encourage a new generation of entrepreneurs? What is the best way to support the UK's successful companies, here and abroad? Which firms need scrutiny over their behaviour?

I look forward to engaging with readers on these issues and many others - each will play an important role in the future of the UK.
