On behalf of business communities across the county, the Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce congratulates Theresa May on becoming Conservative Leader and our next Prime Minister.

Congratulating Theresa May on becoming Prime Minister today, Yolanda Rugg - Hertfordshire Chamber's CEO, said: "The key watchwords for Hertfordshire business remain stability, clarity and action. Westminster must lead by example in the coming weeks, delivering bold decisions to progress key infrastastructure and construction projects, guarantees for EU nationals working in British firms and a commitment to seek the best possible terms of trade for the future.

"Reflecting the views of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) the Hertfordshire Chamber calls for positive, visible steps from Mrs May and her future cabinet team to support buiness and trade to shore up both confidence and investment at this critical time".
