David Cameron has announced a "wholesale change in attitude" from the government to encourage business growth and infrastructure investment.
Speaking at the CBI Annual Conference, the Prime Minister explained how the government will "unlock" £200bn of private and public sector investment into infrastructure over the next five years.
He also stressed the importance of ensuring SMEs get access to finance and said more government procurement budgets would be spent with such firms.
Cameron added: "Where there was neglect about maintaining a basic framework for business, we are bringing a pro-enterprise attitude, dealing with the deficit, cutting business taxes, investing in infrastructure.
"Where there was complacency about our competitive advantages, we are bringing a hands-on attitude - consolidating those strengths and getting behind key industries in every region of the country.
"And where there was a backward-looking, unhelpful approach to innovation and start-ups we are bringing an optimistic attitude - backing the young insurgent companies and pulling down the barriers that are holding them back."
The Spending Review has already committed the government to £40bn of infrastructure investment of which £30bn is going into transport.
