Express your Concerns About Economic Issues - Quarterly Economic Survey

10th June 2015

Each quarter the British Chambers of Commerce facilitates the UK's most comprehensive and credible business survey, the Quarterly Economic Survey (QES).

The survey gives the Chamber a snapshot of the local/national economy and to understand the issues facing businesses. The QES acts as a leading economic indicator, which often highlights big changes in the economy long before other surveys or official statistics. Government departments such as the Treasury and the independent Office for Budget Responsibility use the QES to put together their forecasts for the UK's economic performance. In addition, the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee use the QES as a key benchmark when setting interest rates. Internationally, the European Commission, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the International Monetary Fund use the QES to compare the UK to its global competitors. To take part in this survey, please go to the following website: The survey will stay open until 15 June 2015. The latest QES results for Q1 2015, as well as all trend data, are available at:
