As you may be aware The British Chambers of Commerce Quarterly Economic Survey (QES) is the largest and most representative independent business survey of its kind in the UK.

Each quarter, over 7,500 businesses participate in the QES. Businesses are questioned on a wide range of issues, including: UK sales and orders, export sales and orders, employment prospects, investment, recruitment difficulties, cash-flow, confidence and price pressures. Additional questions included this quarter are on the following topics: - Apprenticeships HS2 International Trade / Export Skills & Training The QES is the first economic indicator of the quarter, published in advance of official figures and other private surveys, and it consistently mirrors trends in official data. For this reason the survey is closely watched by policymakers such as the Treasury, the Bank of England, the Office of Budget Responsibility, the EU Commission and the IMF. The survey should take no more than four minutes to complete and your response would be greatly appreciated.
