Regional Economy Discovers New Balance

It's not all doom and gloom in the economy - regional manufacturers are bucking the trend of the recession.

According to the British Chambers of Commerce quarterly economic survey half of Thames Valley businesses in the sector are increasing turnover and continue to show strong profitability as export sales thrive off the back of a weakening currency.

Cost inflation and competition issues remain concerns, as TV CoC policy executive Clare Prosser said "there is a clear need for corrective action".

Meanwhile Emma Simpson visits the Thames Valley Executive Job Club.

Apparently career management services are an obvious growth area during a period when the service industry is in general decline and increasing numbers of skilled professionals seek advice navigating the local job market.
