In recent weeks, UKGDP figures and other economic data have, for the first time in years, bucked the usual gloomy trend, and are pointing to higher growth and an improved trading environment for firms in the next few years.
With businesses confidence on the up, we will be looking at just how optimistic British businesses are about the future, and what the factors are that have enabled many companies to be in a position for growth.
