How Innovation and Keeping Jobs Onshore is Gaining Traction in the Recession

Governments and thought leaders from around the world are meeting this week at Davos to try and work out how we get the global economy up and running again – how to kick start and drive the much needed growth to get us back on the road to recovery.

President Obama, in his “State of the Union address” on the 24th January 2012, urged Corporate America to keep jobs onshore. He is pressing to change legislation to stop tax breaks for corporations who send work overseas and instead reward businesses who bring jobs back home. The President met with Arise Virtual Solutions Co-Chair, Angela Selden as part of the Insourcing American Jobs Forum at the White House.

Following her meeting with Mr Obama, Angela Selden visited the UK and met with Sarah Newton, MP for Truro and Falmouth, to discuss how this policy could work in the UK. Sarah Newton MP posed a question in the House of Commons about what the government were planning to do in the UK on the same subject.
