Statement from Sheffield Chamber of Commerce following PM’s Announcement
12th October 2020
Sheffield Chamber of Commerce Interim Executive Director Alexis Krachai said:
The business community is helping to shape decision-making in Sheffield. Over the weekend the Council reached out to Sheffield Chamber and other business groups to make sure our views were taken on board as they discussed what to do next with Whitehall. We welcome that involvement. Sheffield Chamber stands ready to help the Council make those difficult decisions.
Today’s announcement by the Prime Minister is just another set of decisions made in the long war against Covid. We must now redouble our efforts to keep fighting this virus whilst keeping our economy open, whilst considering the health and wellbeing of our residents and citizens.
