University of Leicester's School of Business is working with East Midlands Chamber on its Quarterly Economic Survey, with businesses across the region being asked to identify and rank their greatest concerns for the next 12 months.

The survey is being put forward as part of the East Midlands Chamber Quarterly Economic Survey 2018, in partnership with the School of Business.

Results from the survey will help form the East Midlands Chamber's Manifesto for Business for the year and will be put towards MPs in the spring. The manifesto will help shape campaigns and lobbying activity undertaken by the Chamber for the foreseeable future.

Items in the manifesto include energy costs and security, business rates, recruitment and skills, training, broadband and mobile connectivity, road, rail and air connectivity, amongst others.

The University of Leicester School of Business will analyse the results and ensure the direction taken by the Chamber is properly weighted to reflect local needs.

Professor Zoe Radnor, Dean, University of Leicester School of Business, said: "By working in partnership with East Midlands Chamber, particularly with regards the Quarterly Economic Surveys, we will be able to grow its influence in the local economy and enhance the impact it has for our local organisations and guide future generations of entrepreneurs."
