Recovery: Building business and consumer confidence
The last two years have seen a massive change in how the UK economy operates. As the UK moves out of the challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic and seeks to realise opportunities for international trade post EU Exit, trading standards has a key role to play. From helping UK business adapt and thrive, to educating consumers and driving up consumer confidence both from UK consumers and those abroad, effective trading standards is crucial in maintaining a strong and vibrant economy.
