How to effectively do business with UK government

Doing business with governments – winning opportunities, negotiating successfully, and delivering profitability – is an art and a science. At a time of unprecedented government intervention, it has never been more important to ensure effective engagement, whether to win new contracts or secure investments, grants, or loans. You know how to succeed in the United States.

In this webinar, we equipped listeners to navigate the UK government environment by:

  • Highlighting similarities and differences between the UK and U.S. regulatory, procurement, and political systems.
  • Giving you insights into how the UK government thinks and behaves.
  • Helping you understand the tools available to you to succeed.

We also discussed the impact and opportunities coming out of the UK Prime Minister's announcement on 30 June 2020 of a £5 billion package of capital investment projects, supporting jobs, and the economic recovery across the United Kingdom. The investment is being described as a Rooseveltian New Deal in response to the economic damage of COVID-19, and comes within the same week as the most significant easing of the pandemic lockdown across England, and eight days ahead of the chancellor's economic-prosperity-boosting summer statement.

The significance for business is that big infrastructure spend is back on the agenda. Many conservatives, including the Brexit-supporting members of Parliament on the right of the party, would probably much rather have seen the economic stimulus come from lowering taxation and funding small and medium-sized enterprises. But capital investment projects not only facilitate domestic policy's priorities, they also provide jobs and broader investment in parts of the country where the conservatives have not traditionally won seats. The UK government is clearly willing to intervene significantly in the economy, and it is likely to introduce necessary regulatory and policy changes to facilitate the implementation of the planned recovery measures. Investors who can help deliver meaningful and sustainable prosperity for these parts of the United Kingdom, by navigating the upcoming policy and regulatory changes, have everything to play for. Key, however, will be ensuring the government's agenda is properly understood and successfully delivered. For good reason, government is no ordinary customer. For bad reason, not all investors have always remembered this.
