U.K. Small Businesses Optimistic
Yesterday I noted that small businesses in the United States were feeling
optimistic and hiring was up
. Well, it seems that small businesses in the U.K. are feeling much the same.
Tomorrow, the largest study of small businesses ever undertaken in the U.K. will be released. An advance
press report says that the U.K.'s small business sector is healthy, confident and benefiting from a growing economy
. The study shows 43% of small businesses have increased employment since 2002, while only 16% report employment declined.
The study was conducted of over 18,000 small businesses by the
Federation of Small Businesses
, which says it is the U.K.'s leading association for small businesses.
I am looking forward to reading more details about the study.
