In order to promote the views of business effectively it is important for our policy team to understand the current economic conditions and opinions of our members and local businesses.
The Business West quarterly survey provides a regular assessment on the economic situation of local business and it is a valuable source of intelligence for businesses, politicians and policy makers.
On a national level, results from the survey feed into the British Chambers quarterly survey, recognised as the largest and most representative independent business survey.
The survey is published in advance of official figures and other private surveys and is one of three surveys regularly reviewed by the Bank of England when setting monetary policy.
Help us to help you get your voice heard and make sure policy makers know how your business is faring.
