Businesses urged to have their say on support following Brexit

Evesham Editorial 1st Nov, 2016   0

BUSINESSES in the Vale are being urged to have their say on the current state of the economy and what is being done to support them following Britain’s decision to leave the European Union.

The latest Worcestershire Viewpoint Survey is set to get underway in the next few weeks and will target large and small businesses across the county.

It will be the first survey carried out since the Brexit result in June and the first opportunity to quiz businesses on how the decision has affected them so far.

Worcestershire County Council and the Local Enterprise Partnership also hope the views collected will help them to target resources to the business community more effectively.

Coun Dr Ken Pollock, cabinet member for Economy, Infrastructure and Skills said: “Ensuring that Worcestershire is Open for Business is the County Council’s top priority.

“Both Worcestershire County Council and Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership want to know how businesses in the county are doing and what we can do to support them.

“We would be really grateful for businesses who are able to spare around 15 minutes of their time to take part in this really important survey, that will help shape our business support during this coming future period of uncertainty.”

Any business wanting to participate in the survey should e-mail [email protected] by Monday, November 7 to book an interview.
