Trade Survey for Wales – last chance!

employees discuss market research results or sales statistics

Welsh Government invited 8000 businesses with operations in Wales to participate in the fifth Trade Survey for Wales

Most businesses invited to participate employ more than 20 people. Ultimately, every response to the Trade Survey for Wales can inform our work to support business and develop the economy in Wales.

Jonathan Price, Welsh Government’s Chief Economist, said:

“The unprecedented events of the last few years have given rise to many economic challenges. We want to understand these better and to measure the impacts on businesses in Wales.

“Your participation will help us understand any key changes in trade patterns of businesses based, or operating sites, in Wales in 2022. If you receive a letter, please complete the survey - your participation could influence decisions that may affect key aspects of your industry”. 

This is the only survey that focuses on trade activity in Wales. Findings feed directly into Welsh Government trade policy and strengthen the evidence base behind business-support. It provides important insight and information on trade not otherwise available. This helps us develop effective policies and put in place the right packages of support that reflect the genuine needs of businesses in Wales. 

The survey will be open until the end of December 2023 so there is plenty of time to still participate. 

We have commissioned IFF Research to conduct the Trade Survey for Wales on our behalf. 

If you have any queries about how to fill in the online survey, please email or phone the helpline on 0300 0259 000. 

For further information, please take a look at the Trade Survey for Wales guidance on the Welsh Government website.
