In response to a set of newly proposed reforms to the UK’s immigration system, Duncan Edwards, Chief Executive Officer, commented the following:

“We welcome the Prime Minister’s recently announced proposals regarding the UK’s future immigration system, in particular the measures aimed at attracting more highly-skilled, experienced and entrepreneurial migrants to the UK.

“Having called for these proposals in our 2019/20 Policy Agenda, it is encouraging to see the Government is listening and responding to the needs of business, and we believe these proposals are a but a first step towards an updated, modern, and outward looking immigration system for the UK.

BAB and its members look forward to working closely with the Government to develop such a system that not only meets the needs of a modern society, but also drives economic growth and prosperity.”
