The National ACCI COVID-19 Business Conditions Survey
This survey is to assist in measuring the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on businesses.
The results of the first and second surveys can be found via the following link to the ACCI website. Your response to the survey is valuable in assisting to paint a clearer picture of the financial impact of COVID-19, how businesses are responding and the effectiveness of the Government support programs.
The survey has stimulated much interest from Government and is helping them to better target further relief measures, and begin the development of policies for the phased reopening of the economy and measures to drive the recovery.
Your continued involvement with the survey will make an important contribution to this effort.
