Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire (PRWEB UK) 12 February 2013
The latest Duport Business Confidence Report for Waltham Cross shows a drop in company formations during the third quarter of last year.
During this period, new company registrations fell by 11%, when compared with the same period in 2011. Company closures also fell during this period, but despite this, there was still an overall reduction in net company growth.
In addition, the UK company share of Waltham Cross fell during the third quarter, suggesting that the town may be feeling the effects of the economic downturn. However, the local council are working hard to promote the town to investors, with the aim of strengthening the local economy.
Managing Director of Duport.co.uk, Peter Valaitis said:
“Although the statistics in our latest report for Waltham Cross are not universally positive, the drop in net company growth is relatively small.”
“There are so many benefits to setting up a business in this area, including proximity to London and continuing improvements to the town centre, I feel sure new company numbers will rise again in future.”
