comments on national support measures (tax holidays, rate reliefs etc.) and local support measures to attract new business:Are there any (local support measures)?
Are they working?
Are they appreciated?
What else should be in place?
prospects for the future:
Is there evidence of recovery?
What is the degree of confidence (are there any types of businesses expressing confidence?)?
current experiences on bank lending (charges etc.)
