Stephen McPartland, has welcomed the launch of the Conservative Party Manifesto today.
Stephen said, "The world is changing rapidly with the welcome news we are all living longer, but increasing globalisation is having a massive impact on how we live, buy and sell products, interact with public services and develop the skills to succeed in the workplace. There are five big challenges facing us as a country and the Government must catch up and help develop the structures we need to succeed. There are five big challenges facing us and the Conservatives have a forward thinking plan to tackle those challenges."
- The need for a strong economy
We need to make the most of our existing strengths, invest in infrastructure and people, and ensure that the whole of our economy across the whole of our country can grow. Without a strong economy, we cannot guarantee our security, our personal prosperity, our public services, or contented and sustainable communities
- Brexit and a changing world
We need to deliver a smooth and orderly departure from the European Union and forge a deep and special partnership with our friends and allies across Europe. As there is increasingly little distinction between domestic and international affairs in mtters of migration, national security and the economy, Britain must stay strong and united – and take a lead in the world to defend our interests.
- Enduring social divisions
For too many people, where you end up in life is still determined by where you were born and to whom. We need to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to make the most of their talents and hard work, whoever you are and wherever you are from.
- An ageing society
We need to respond to the reality of an ageing society, giving people security in old age and caring for those with long-term health conditions, whilst making sure we are fair to younger generations.
- Fast-changing technology
For the sake of our economy and our society, we need to harness the power of fast-changing technology, while ensuring that our security and personal privacy – and the welfare of children and younger people – are protected.
