Date: 22/02/2018

The Quarterly Economic Survey (QES) is the largest and most representative independent business survey of its kind in the UK. Based on over 7,000 responses nationally and a large number of responses locally, the QES helps Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce assess how businesses in the two counties are performing on a range of key indicators and understand businesses' biggest concerns.
Businesses are questioned on a wide range of issues, including: home sales and orders, export sales and orders, employment prospects, investment, recruitment difficulties, cashflow, confidence and price pressures.

The QES is the first economic indicator of the quarter, published in advance of official figures and other private surveys, and it consistently mirrors trends in official data. For this reason the survey is closely watched by policymakers such as the Treasury, the Bank of England, the Office of Budget Responsibility, the EU Commission and the IMF.

The survey for Q1 closes on Monday 12 March, to have your say visit:
