Chamber seeks views on trade

Trade chiefs are urging High Peak businesses to have their say on the issues facing them.

Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire (DNCC) Chamber of Commerce is asking for the information as part of the latest Quarterly Economic Survey.

As well as regular questions about the current state of the local economy during the second quarter of the year, the chamber is also seeking views on smarter working practices, red tape, business support, access to finance and the potential impacts of EU immigration from Bulgaria and Romania.

“The results will form part of the UK’s largest regular independent business survey, which is used by economists, Government departments, ministers and the Bank of England to influence decisions regarding policy and the economy.

DNCC Chief Executive George Cowcher said: “This information is used to help direct chamber policy and determine what DNCC campaigns on.”
