The British Chamber of Commerce (BCC) Quarterly Economic Survey (QES) is the largest and most representative business survey of its kind. Over the years it has been a consistently accurate economic indicator. For instance, the BCC was the first business group, based on its QES findings, to confirm that the UK was entering a recession in 2008.
By taking part in the survey you help to communicate the business community’s views on a wide range of issues that affect day-to-day activities, and subsequently influence policy makers on the regional and national stage. QES data is used by the Bank of England to inform Interest rate decisions, by the Treasury to formulate overall economic policy through the budget and by International finance institutions to assess the state of the UK economy.
Your voice is a critical component of the QES, so we’ve made it easy to get your views heard. To take part in the survey, simply to take part in the survey, simply click on the link below.
