Quarterly Economic Survey Results December 2010
News Posted: 6 January 2011
Trading conditions seem to have improved for the Manufacturing Sector both in home and in export markets. Investment in plant has increased and confidence levels in turnover and profitability have risen significantly. Although there have been some job losses over the quarter, the balances remain positive and workforce levels are predicted to remain relatively stable. Cashflow has eased slightly. More firms are under pressure to increase prices this quarter, mainly due to an increase in the cost of raw materials. Competition remains the biggest external factor of concern.
