''The main issues around healthcare reform and tax reform are done'', Major says.

''The main things people are looking forward to this year are much less Donald Trump and much more listening to CEOs of companies talking about the longer-term outlook for businesses that they run''.

Major says some of the issues which remain uncertain as we move into 2018 are the repeal of the medical device excise tax and the so-called 'Cadillac Tax'.

Another biggie he says is the state of drug pricing as we head into the mid-term election cycle.
