Business Confidence Returns to Positive

An Institute of Directors poll of 700 company directors has found that business confidence has returned to positive for the first time since Article 50 was triggered. The IoD say the transition deal “has brought some much needed reassurance” and that Brexit is no longer even in the top three concerns of business leaders. IoD senior economist Tej Parikh said:

“It seems likely meaningful progress in Brexit negotiations since December has brought some much needed reassurance.”

Expect the remain press to lap this one up…
