Buoyant outlook for Birmingham firms

Businesspeople - Optimistic about future growth - SantanderCB

Fifty-seven per cent of Birmingham businesspeople are optimistic when it comes to potential future growth, with just 5 per cent pessimistic, according to a new survey from Santander Corporate & Commercial. 

Almost half (48%) think business sentiment will improve in the next 12 months, while 10 per cent hold a negative outlook.

John Simkins, regional director at Santander Corporate & Commercial, said: 'It is great to see that SMEs and business professionals in Birmingham and across the West Midlands are clearly confident about the future, are positive on local employment and see exporting and international trade as key to the success of local businesses.'

The findings of the research were unveiled at Santander's Red Box event at Brindleyplace earlier this week.
