Ongoing development of the area by the local authority, plus a rise in the number of directors under 25 could go a long way to generating growth in 2013
UK (PRWEB UK) 7 January 2013
Huntingdon: Figures in the latest Duport Business Confidence Report show that between July and September 2012, net company growth in Huntingdon fell to 43, compared to 64 in the third quarter of 2011.
Interestingly, the number of company formations stayed exactly the same when comparing the third quarters of 2011 and 2012. However, the number of company closures rose - leading to the drop in net company growth.
The report also shows a drop in UK company share. However, numbers of young director appointments are rising, suggesting that entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in the town.
Managing Director of Duport.co.uk, Peter Valaitis said:
“The statistics in our latest report suggest that Huntingdon is still feeling the effects of the recession.”
“However, ongoing development of the area by the local authority, plus a rise in the number of directors under 25 could go a long way to generating growth in 2013.”
