ABOUT THE CONGRESSIONAL REVIEW
Combining political commentary from leading journalists, with sector specific insight, The Congressional Review is an indispensable guide to industry best practice, which demonstrates how sector leaders have responded to challenges in the political and economic environment.
The Review has several editions, each focusing on an individual policy area with the strategic aim of raising standards by highlighting best practice.
The UK equivalent, The Parliamentary Review, is sent to over half a million leading business executives and policy makers. In recent years, it has featured forewords by Prime Ministers Theresa May and David Cameron, as well as several Secretaries of State. The Review's release is marked by an annual gala in the Palace of Westminster.
