Comment on George Osborne’s speech on the UK economy and growth (17 Aug 2010)

Commenting on George Osborne’s speech on the UK economy and growth.

Baroness Jo Valentine is Chief Executive of London First, which represents many of London’s leading private sector employers. She said:

“Putting the economy firmly on the road to recovery is vital, but growth depends on a competitive business environment and being able to attract and retain the best global talent. A competitive tax system, both personal and corporate, and an immigration system which differentiates between highly skilled, value-adding talent, and lower skilled economic migrants are crucial to achieve this.”
