14 July 2010
The Business Tendency Survey (BTS) for June 2010 has been published today by the States of Jersey Statistics Unit. The headline indicator of Business Activity, though marginally negative, shows a significantly slower rate of decline than in previous quarters.
The finance sector saw the most positive results for business activity and future employment seen in the last year, although profitability remained negative.
The non-finance sectors saw 5 of the 10 indicators improve on March 2010 results, however 8 of these remained negative.
In particular, construction saw considerable improvement in current business activity and new business; input costs, however, increased.
