Chamber seeks action on sales

Sheffield Chamber of Commerce chief Richard Wright has called on the Government to do more to help firms achieve sustainable sales in the wake of fluctuating orders throughout 2012.

Mr Wright was speaking after the release of the latest Chambers of Commerce Quarterly Economic Survey.

He said: “Businesses are seeing a fluctuation in sales and orders in each quarter, which then has a knock-on effect with long-term developments, such as investments, training and employment.

“More needs to be done nationally to help businesses achieve sustainable sales which will breed confidence.
