Business West run the Quarterly Economic Survey as an accredited member of the British Chamber of Commerce. 553 businesses completed the Q1 2021 survey giving Business West unparalleled insight into the trends and experience of business health for our region.

The survey findings show that it has been a testing start to the year for businesses in our region, with the third national lockdown and the start of the new trading relationship with the European Union constraining business operations across all fronts. The survey also shows that cashflow levels are at their lowest in the last three years.
