Economy, Business and Trade

The Economy, Business and Trade Policy Commission develops Labour's economic and business policy, including industrial strategy and international trade.

This includes how we boost productivity, improve skills and infrastructure, and how we create industrial and trade strategies fit for the twenty-first century. The Commission meets regularly to consider evidence and submissions, identify challenges, and develop Labour policy in these areas.

The members of the Policy Commission are drawn from the National Policy Forum, the Shadow Cabinet and the National Executive Committee. Its membership reflects all parts of our movement, including Labour party members, affiliated organisations and elected politicians.

2018 Consultation 

The Commission has agreed to look at the issue of the ‘Future of Work’, the changing nature of technology, employment and the workplace will have important implications for the economy and working people’s living standards. 

We will be publishing a consultation paper in 2018.
