Our latest survey shows exports, confidence and investment all improving as recovery gathers pace
The Mid Yorkshire Chamber's Quarterly Economic Survey for the first quarter of 2014 is now available.
The survey shows growing confidence among our region's firms, with export orders and investment particularly buoyant.
However, Business Rates remain an issue for many businesses and raw material price pressures continue to burden manufacturing firms.
Head of Policy Steven Leigh commented:
"We hope that the positivity evident in this quarter’s survey will be maintained throughout the year. Clearly the global recovery remains finely balanced. However, there are also great opportunities for UK firms, and renewed domestic levels of confidence in the economic outlook should help to encourage businesses to expand, take on staff, develop new products and explore new markets.
As ever, the Chamber will be here to support you."
