Have Your Say

The Quarterly Economic Survey (QES) is an economic indicator that charts business performance and confidence throughout the local region. Published in advance of official economic statistics and other private surveys, it consistently mirrors trends in the national economy. For this reason the survey itself, along with others throughout the British Chambers Network, is closely watched by policymakers in Government, the Bank of England and by local and national media.

Please note that all responses will be treated with the strictest of confidence.

Thank you in advance for your support.
