United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May formed five business councils in November 2018 to advise on how to create the best business conditions in the UK after Brexit.

Co-chaired by two business leaders, each council would have around ten members representing core sectors of the UK economy, as well as a representative from the UK’s key business groups.

The Councils would cover the following areas:

+ Telecoms, Creative, Technology and Media Council
+ Industrial, Infrastructure and Manufacturing Council
+ Small Business, Scale ups and Entrepreneurs Council
+ Services - Financial, Professional and Education Services Council
+ Consumer, Retail and Life Sciences Council.
