Invitation to contribute to annual Eurochambres Economic Survey 2020 (EES).

Chambers Ireland will be participating in 27th edition of the annual Eurochambres Economic Survey 2020 (EES), which, each year, seeks to capture the expectations of the European business environment and the challenges it faces.

This qualitative study is based on a series of questions addressed and answered by over 45,000 company responses. 

It will be particularly important this year to assess the major concerns for businesses, as the economy in which we operate has been performing well but has become increasingly volatile. On one hand, domestic demand is rising and European Union (EU) trade deals such as EU/Vietnam, have opened up new exporting opportunities for business. However, on the other hand, the UK’s departure from the EU, skills shortages and increased trade tensions, most notably between the US and China have created red tape and market uncertainty for enterprises across Europe.

This survey will ask a range of basic questions relating to business challenges, workforce development and sale expectations. As climate change and the associated risks are impacting the daily running of business, from supply chains to internal management, one question related to the actions your your business will take in 2020 to transition to a low-carbon economy, has been added.

Shannon Chamber would encourage all members to participate in this survey so that the views of this region are taken into account.

The survey should not take longer than 4 minutes to fill out. The deadline for completion is the 30th September 2019.

Once the study is complete, you will be able to access the results of the study in December on Chambers Ireland website. To review last year’s EuroChambres Economic Survey, please click here.
