The third economic trends survey of 2020 captured the sentiment of the Cork business community as we transitioned from the initial shock waves of the Covid-19 pandemic to a considerably altered business operating landscape across the region and country. In our latest economic trends we report on business experiences during July, August and September, and the outlook for the fourth and final quarter of 2020. We also report on the changes made to work practices as a result of Covid-19, the return to offices, and connectivity across the county to fibre broadband.


"Businesses across the county have been under immeasurable stress since the onset of the pandemic. While navigating what is completely uncharted territory, the latest trends reflect the growing concern of the business community as they seek-out a degree of certainty" Paula Cogan, President Cork Chamber.
