British Chambers of Commerce Quarterly Economic Survey Q2

The BCC’s Quarterly Economic Survey (QES) is the biggest and longest-running private business survey in the UK. Established since 1989, it has a gained a substantial media and policy profile. For example:

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 Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) use the QES when comparing the UK to competitors worldwide
