Government Policy & Local Business Markets Your Local Enterprise Partnership has asked you to produce a report to help board members of the LEP better understand how government policy and LEP policy can influence business markets.

Your report needs to answer the following questions:

Later on…. • Why are these markets regulated more than others? (M3) • Should the LEP be concerned about Europe? (P7) • How do EU decisions affect businesses? (D2) • What are the implications for the LEP? • Finally, please provide an evaluation of the effectiveness of regulatory regimes in one of the key New Anglia sectors.

Grading Criteria P4 describe the role of the government in influencing the economy and business activity P6 describe how business markets are regulated in the UK

Grading Tips To achieve P4 you need to describe the range of government policies that exist and influence business markets. Emphasis should be placed on local business markets and those policies which most impact on local business markets.

Grading Tips To achieve P6 you need to consider how governments intervene in markets to regulate them. Intervention can be through taxes and subsidies which are designed to distort the market to achieve specific objectives.
