The Black Country Chamber of Commerce has launched its latest Quarterly Economic Survey and they are encouraging businesses across the region to take just two minutes of their time to complete the short questionnaire.
QES is Britain’s largest and longest running business survey. It is a powerful tool for representing the voice of business to Government; the results are analysed and used by the Black Country Chamber at a local level, and nationally through the British Chambers of Commerce.
It will be the last QES survey before the 29th March Brexit deadline.
So vital is the information gathered by the Chamber it is used by the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee as one of its key benchmarks when setting interest rates.
The HM Treasury and the Independent Office for Budget Responsibility to put together their forecasts for the UK’s economic performance from its findings.
And for the European Commission to assess the health of the UK economy when it makes policy recommendations for both Westminster and Brussels.
Chamber Policy Officer, Dan Turner said:
“Our Quarterly Economic Survey is a vital tool for us to assess the health of the Black Country economy. By taking 2-minutes to fill in the survey, businesses can provide us with the incredibly valuable data we need. The results are monitored closely by a range of important organisations. No other business representative organisation has the reach to undertake a private sector survey of this size, so the Chamber network is unique in its ability to collect this important data.”
