26 April –
Economic Business Breakfast Forum
Tuesday 26th April
7:30am – 9am
Join a Business Breakfast Briefing, where the Chamber’s Alliance 4 the Black Country will present the results of the Chamber's Black Country Business Indicator and explain the implications for our local economy.
The survey is extremely well respected and influential and is used by the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee and a number of government departments. By taking part it ensures that the issues that affect Black Country businesses specifically are heard at the highest level. The results are given coverage by local, national and international media.
The British Chambers of Commerce Quarterly Economic survey is designed to monitor key economic performance indicators such as domestic trade, exports, employment, levels of investment, cash flow, prices and business confidence. The breakfast is also a chance to give your opinion on the key external issues which affect you and your views on our future relationship with Europe.
A key part of the meeting is an interactive voting system which allows attendees to vote in confidence on the key questions of the day – these are recorded and Black Country Chamber can monitor and feedback changes and trends live on the day.
The British Chambers of Commerce Quarterly Economic survey anticipated the onset of the two recessions since the early 1990s before they began and continues to act as a reliable indicator of national and regional economic performance. The data revealed by it is timely, accurate and invaluable for anyone wishing to understand the subtle shifts in the economic climate for businesses in the Black Country, West Midlands and beyond.
The survey itself comprises 23 tick box questions covering demand, employment, confidence, investment and external factors and takes just two minutes to complete. No detailed information is required and the survey is completely anonymous. Completion of this is encouraged to increase the profile of the Black Country nationally.
