Delivering outcomes, creating value: Government and the Global CEO

72%of CEOs are concerned about geopolitical uncertainty and government responses to fiscal deficits and debts

44%of CEOs, and 49% of state backed CEOs, intend collaborating with government over the next three years to deliver a skilled, adaptable workforce

Government findings from our 18th Annual Global CEO survey

As the world tries to cope with rising tensions, we remain optimistic that together business and government can deliver what citizens really want by putting good growth and good jobs at the heart of the purpose and mission of our public bodies.

Each year, our Annual Global CEO Survey captures issues at the top of the business agenda. As in past years, we have deepened the research by including a range of interviews with senior decision makers in governmental organisations and public bodies across the world.

This report sets out businesses’ priorities for government, and discusses how public bodies can:

  • become more affordable, through a focus on sustainable cost reduction;
  • rise to the digital challenge, improving productivity and outcomes;
  • invest in growth, particularly skills and infrastructure;
  • collaborate with business, delivering societal outcomes; and
  • reduce business burdens, adopting smarter approaches to regulation and tax.
