Your invitation to help make Fife the easiest place to do business
7th June 2012
Help make Fife an easier place to do business by letting us know what it's like to operate in Fife.
If you are a businesses in Fife, have your say by clicking here to complete a short online survey.
The survey asks for information about doing business in Fife, in particular your experience of accessing public services.
The survey results will provide the Fife Economy Partnership with information on what can be improved to better support businesses operating in Fife.
Chris Parr, Chair of the Fife Economy Partnership, launched the survey saying: “It’s important that we build a better understanding of all businesses operating in Fife, big and small, so we can work with them to help them be as successful as possible. This is a long term ambition but further short term improvements are possible.
“The online questionnaire gives businesses an opportunity to tell us about themselves and about their experiences. The more businesses that take part, the better a picture we can build of the kinds of challenges they face. This will help us ensure that business support services are tailored to meet business needs.”
John Kilgour President of Fife Chamber of Commerce and Enterprise said “We would encourage every business to let Fife Council know exactly where they think improvements can be made, because ‘Making Fife the Easiest Place to do Business’ will help all businesses in the Kingdom in the long term. We believe that whilst some improvements have been made in recent times, Fife still has a long way to go before it can be fully confident of this desirable ambition. ”
Gordon Henderson, the Federation of Small Businesses’ East of Scotland Senior Development Manager, endorsed the survey saying “It’s important that the members of the Fife Economy Partnership are aware of the views of businesses of all sizes and sectors to make sure that economic development activity is concentrated where it’s needed”
Everyone who completes the survey will be entered into a prize draw for 4 tickets to the Fife Business Awards dinner at the Rothes Halls, on 15th November 2012, which will close Fife Business Week. Now in their 14th year the Fife Business Awards celebrate the quality, success and enterprising achievements of the local business community.
