IBTimes business editor Lianna Brinded looks back on the week in business.

This week has all been about the UK government courting the global business elite as well as the millions of small to medium enterprises around the country.

At the World Economic Forum, UK Chancellor George Osborne told big business to forget about the recession and start ploughing cash back into country.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister David Cameron pledged to slash regulation in a bid to make it easier for businesses to flourish and grow.
