Now more than ever, it’s really important that we reiterate to our business community – and indeed the wider, general public in Oxfordshire – that our economy remains a strong and resilient one. It’s an economy that is well-positioned to react in a measured way to the potential challenges possibly brought about by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
We recognise that Coronavirus is – and will very likely – cause concern and possible disruption to businesses of all sizes for the foreseeable future. However, we are determined to play our role in ensuring that the county’s businesses are able to run as efficiently as possible and remain productive.
Communications Manager Rob Panting on Coronavirus (COVID-19): 'We are determined to play our role in ensuring that the county’s businesses are able to run as efficiently as possible and remain productive."
Oxfordshire remains a great place run a business. Our economy is undoubtedly a strong and adaptable one and – as a county – we have an excellent track record of supporting small businesses to survive beyond five years, well-above the UK average.
It is also important that we – as a local enterprise partnership – continue to communicate with our business community and pass on your views and concerns to Government, as well as providing practical support where we can.
