Policy & Lobbying
The Chamber has run various high profile campaigns in response to concerns from Chamber members on a number of different issues.
Transport is a major issue of concern for Chamber members and an area where we have campaigned extensively. Transport has a disproportionate impact on this region because of our geography. We must see sustained capital investment in our infrastructure to improve our connectivity and support the nationally important North-east economic contribution.
