10 January: QES Business Breakfast

East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce is committed to ensuring that the needs of business are at the forefront of decision makers’ and Ministers’ considerations as they formulate policy.

The British Chambers of Commerce and the accredited Chamber Network run Britain’s most influential private business survey – the BCC Quarterly Economic Survey which is Britain’s biggest private business survey, providing consistent data since 1989 and regularly receiving thousands of business responses.

It is widely regarded as the most informative and influential input to the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee and the Treasury. It provides the unequalled combination of proven report on the trends in the national economy, while being significant enough at each local level to provide the nuances and variations that have to be understood for monetary policy to be universally effective.

At the national level, it’s a leading indicator – often picking up big changes in the economy long before other surveys or official statistics. At a local level it allows us to better understand the East

Lancashire economy and provide high quality information that supports local investment.

QES is the largest and longest-running business survey in the UK and is a powerful tool for representing the voice of business to Government. To retain its reputation as a reliable economic indicator and a powerful tool for lobbying, it is vital as many businesses as possible respond to it.

this event runs from 8.00am - 10.00am.
