Welcome to the Somerset Chamber of Commerce
Now the sun is shining, Rupert reflects on whether the economy too is enjoying a summer renaissance. Falling unemployment, rising house prices and future interest rates all have a part to play in the growth of the economy, while memories of Lehman Brothers and Northern Rock just a few years ago may help to explain our caution when it comes to ensuring sustainable growth.
The August Chamber magazine also includes information on new business investment packages for the South West, upcoming line closures between Castle Cary and Taunton, and an opportunity to meet the new CEO of Somerset County Council. As well as sharing some of our members’ good news stories, we’re also celebrating the arrival in Somerset of leading international gallery Hauser & Wirth, and our own accreditation to the British Chambers of Commerce for another three years.
