• Represent Sandwell businesses and encourage two-way dialogue with the Council
• Implement a local business forum that creates a business community and helps local businesses prosper

Work to fix the skills gaps

• Help to close the current skills gap between school, college and university leavers and Sandwell businesses’ requirements
