Chamber calls on firms to join national survey on economy

Nov 12, 2014

The Chamber’s Quarterly Economic Survey is asking for feedback from businesses on their experiences of trading during Q4 of 2014.

Firms are questioned on a wide range of topics including: home sales and orders, export sales and orders, employment prospects, investment, recruitment difficulties, cashflow, confidence and price pressures.

Each Chamber in the British Chambers of Commerce network carries out the QES. The regional results are fed through to the BCC and then passed on to national government and the Monetary Policy Committee, providing them with an accurate national economic overview.

Milton Keynes Chamber chief executive Paul Griffiths (pictured) said: “This national QES is the largest business survey of its kind and is widely used by the media and politicians alike to gain an overall picture of the UK economy and the issues facing businesses.

“It is also used by the Bank of England and can influence the MPC on interest rate decisions.

“With this in mind, we can then lobby government on their behalf to put measures in place that will support them.”

The survey will remain open until December 1.
