Businesses urged to complete influential economic survey
Businesses in the region are being asked to complete Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce’s Quarterly Economic Survey. The survey gives a snapshot of economic conditions being faced by businesses, with the results being distributed to key decision-makers and organisations, including MPs, local authorities and the Bank of England.
Hannah Crookes, External Affairs Manager at Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce, comments:
“The QES is an important way of informing Government about the pressures businesses are facing.
“We saw in Quarter 3 that UK sales and exports performance were showing positivity, particularly in that there was an improvement in comparison to this time last year, however business confidence was a growing concern. These concerns have since been mirrored with several large employers locally announcing they are to shed jobs. This has become a major cause for concern, particularly with the potential multiplier effect that the closures will cause, impacting on the region’s economy. The real impact, of course, is the potential hardship to the workers involved, their families and other local businesses in the supply chain.
“At the Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce we therefore need to gain accurate information from other businesses in the Humber region to see how they are doing in the current economic climate, as well as what key business concerns and business expectations are over the forthcoming months. We are encouraging businesses across the Humber to spare a few minutes to complete our Quarterly Economic Survey.”
The survey is available online, via the following link, until Monday 3rd December 2012. Please note you will need the password, economy, and the Chamber ID number, 44.
