Welcome to the latest edition of the quarterly economic report and thank you to all the companies who took the time to complete the survey during the current circumstances. Whilst the numbers make for grim reading this will likely be the most significant quarterly economic survey in three decades as policy makers look to the results in helping to guide recovery plans. The results present a dramatic picture of the devastating impact of the coronavirus pandemic on companies, jobs and the economy as a whole. Businesses across Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield are suffering – but there is more confidence here for the future than the rest of the country.
