Welsh business activity falls for the first time since July 2016

According to the latest NatWest Wales PMI® data, private sector firms registered the first fall in business activity since July 2016 in October amid a further decrease in new work. Hesitancy among clients reportedly led to a third successive monthly decline in demand, with firms cutting workforce numbers in response.

Ongoing Brexit uncertainty was also reflected in a drop in business confidence, with optimism hitting a seven-month low. On the price front, rates of input price and output charge inflation softened, with costs rising at the slowest pace since July 2016.

The headline Wales Business Activity Index – a seasonally adjusted index that measures the combined output of the manufacturing and service sectors – registered 49.3 in October, down from 50.2 in September to signal a marginal contraction in output at the start of the fourth quarter. The latest data indicated the first decline in business activity since mid-2016 as clients remained hesitant to commit to large orders.

Subsequently, private sector firms in Wales noted a third successive monthly decrease in new business in October. The fall in new orders was linked to de-stocking among clients in Europe and ongoing political uncertainty which has impacted client decisions. Although the rate of contraction was only marginal overall and softer than that seen in September, it was slightly faster than the UK average.

Welsh private sector firms registered a sharp decrease in employment in October. Panellists stated that lower client demand led to the non-replacement of voluntary leavers, with firms reducing workforce numbers at the fastest pace for almost eight years.

A drop in pressure on capacity following a further cut in new business allowed firms to process orders in a timely manner. Therefore, backlogs of work fell at the fastest rate since June 2018.

Business in Focus AGM to Focus on the Future SME Economy in Wales – Business News Wales

Hosted next Wednesday 13th November in the Welsh Capital, the annual Business In Focus AGM breakfast is set to be like no other.

This year guest speaker, Carwyn Jones AM will share his views on the future for the start-up community in Wales. The former first minister will cover the challenges and opportunities he sees ahead and how Welsh business owners can be more prepared for the future.

With an abundance of national business barometers highlighting the resilience in the Welsh economy, the event comes at a time when the role of the SME’s has never been so important.

A recent acquisition has resulted in the social enterprise increasing the size of its portfolio by 67%, taking it from 227k to nearly 380k square feet, increasing its provision of affordable office space to growing numbers of small businesses.

The six acquired sites are located in Abercynon, Aberdare, Bedwas, Dowlais, Pentrebach and Wrexham, helping local entrepreneurs to provide better jobs closer to home – a cornerstone of the Welsh Government’s economic aims.

The annual business meeting is also designed to showcase the work with clients and highlight successes over the year.

Speaking ahead of the event, Chief Executive, Katy Chamberlain said:

The event is a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase our clients and their fantastic achievements. Our SME’s are without a doubt the backbone of the Welsh economy and this event provides us with the opportunity to update the wider business community around some of the ambitious plans Business In Focus has for the future.

Additional £6 Million Funding Support for Businesses to Deal with Brexit –

The Welsh Government is making a further £6 million available to help businesses manage the ongoing disruption and uncertainty caused by Brexit, Economy Minister Ken Skates has announced.

With continued uncertainty remaining around the UK’s departure from the European Union following the recent extension from today until to 31 January 2020, the Welsh Government is again taking action to support the business community during these challenging times.

The Welsh Government will continue to prepare for both an agreed exit and a no deal exit from the EU, to protect the interests of Wales and its people.

The funding builds on the success of the Welsh Government’s Brexit Business Resilience Grant Fund, delivered by Business Wales, which made available nearly £2.5 million additional funding to 51 businesses across Wales.

The M4 in Wales: The reasons for the congestion and number of crashes – Welsh Business News

Drivers who drive it, and journalists who report on it, will be very familiar with the number of accidents and traffic jams on the M4.

It can seem in some weeks that there is an incident every day or two that causes long delays and, in the worst cases, a serious or fatal injury. Last month, there were four accidents on the same stretch in less than a week.

There were no serious injuries but crashes have caused hours of delays for commuters and the problem seems to be getting worse. For years, the pinch-point around Newport , in particular the Brynglas Tunnels, have constricted traffic flow and sent blood pressures soaring.

In 2018, there were two fatal accidents, five serious and 10 other accidents recorded between junction 29 at Cardiff and junction 23 at Magor.

It is the busiest part of the motorway in south Wales. Department of Transport figures show that junction 27 at High Cross sees nearly 122,000 vehicles a day.

The sheer volume of traffic could be a factor in the number of accidents, but some commuters are blaming the variable speed limits introduced to that section of the motorway in 2016, while experts say the motorway was never built for the number of vehicles that actually use it. Police say poor weather conditions are also a contributing factor.
