The CBI speaks on behalf of 190,000 businesses. Together they employ nearly 7 million people, about one-third of the private sector-employed workforce. They believe that business has the power to do good. To make a difference. When the economy booms, society prospers, and every business plays a part in protecting and growing that economy. They create opportunities, build, innovate and cultivate a better future for the next generation. That’s the true purpose of business. And it's the CBI's purpose too.
