CBI responds to Government supply chain announcement
The CBI responded to a Government announcement on supply chain finance.
Matthew Fell, CBI Director for Competitive Markets, said:
“Boosting the use of supply chain finance is an innovative way to ease the funding squeeze for many smaller businesses, but it is dependent on the nature of individual supply chains to work effectively so is not a one size fits all solution.
“At the same time larger firms are identifying a variety of different ways to support their supply chains, normally through improved payment terms, direct collaboration and investment.
“It’s encouraging to see the Government leading from the front by setting up its own supply chain finance scheme for NHS pharmacists.
