Review of Scottish business surveys [March 2014]

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This section provides an overview of key recent business survey evidence in Scotland. The latest findings suggest that although recovery has its ups and downs most of the recent Business Surveys have shown a distinct improvement in the recent economic climate; indeed many of the Surveys show that trends in key indicators are stronger than a year ago and net balance figures are returning to prerecession levels of late 2007, perhaps indicating that the worst of the recession may now be over. However some warn that the recovery still remains fragile and further action may be required to ensure that it is sustainable.
