  • What is the QES?

    The QES is Britain’s largest independent business survey in the UK. It is a powerful tool for representing the voice of business to Government; the results are analysed and used by Cornwall Chamber of Commerce at a local level, and nationally through the British Chambers of Commerce.

    The QES is also used by:

    • The Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee uses the QES as one of its key benchmarks when setting interest rates.
    • HM Treasury and the independent Office for Budget Responsibility use the QES to put together their forecasts for the UK’s economic performance.
    • The European Commission uses the QES to assess the health of the UK economy when it makes policy recommendations for both Westminster and Brussels.
  • The Quarterly Economic Survey allows businesses in Cornwall to express their views on a number of issues affecting their day-to-day business. The results are analysed and used by the Cornwall Chamber and the British Chambers of Commerce to exert influence on your behalf locally and with central Government.

    It is particularly important in the current economic climate that the issues and concerns of businesses are accurately represented so they can inform the development of regional and national economic policy.

    The questionnaire literally takes just 3 or 4 minutes to complete so we would encourage as many businesses as possible to participate.

    Thank you in advance for taking part and making sure your views are heard.
