The second economic trends survey of 2020 captures the sentiment of the Cork business community at a time of uncertainty during the rapidly evolving Covid-19 public health emergency. The survey which reports on member experiences during April, May and June questioned the business community on their experience of Q2 and their outlook for Q3 2020 on business confidence, the overall operating landscape, skills, threats and opportunities.
"While not in calm waters just yet, as a community we have pulled together and supported each other. And that has stood to us. We can see this in our latest economic trends results with a resurgence in those reporting business confidence to 73% from a low of 54% in the previous Q1 survey." Paula Cogan, President Cork Chamber.
