Info seeks to x-ray, through a survey, the business situation against COVID-19

The aim is to know the specific difficulties of companies to adapt the Info services to the new needs arising from the crisis.

The Instituto de Fomento (Info) has begun to disseminate a survey among thousands of companies in the region to better contextualize their difficulties with the coronavirus and thus be able to offer more relevant services to address the current pandemic.

From the INFO, among the activities planned by the “Regional Observatory for monitoring the impact of Covid19 on the economy and foreign trade”, it has been decided to launch this first “Barometer of the Impact of Covid-19 on Companies in the Region of Murcia” to find out the current situation of SMEs and their problems, and to monitor the scope of the sector.

With the essential collaboration of the regional business fabric, it is hoped to obtain a very precise map of the labour and economic impact of the epidemic, as well as the short and medium-term perspectives in each business area of the entire Region. With a vision that is as accurate and precise as possible in relation to reality, it will be possible to adapt the support provided by public administrations and, specifically, those developed and implemented by the autonomous body itself.

The digital survey, which is anonymous, is very simple and can be answered in less than five minutes. It consists of 14 questions with multiple choice answers. Obviously, the greater the number of companies that respond, the results will reflect, in a more rigorous way, the difficulties that the companies of the Region are going through.

The results obtained through the survey will be made public as soon as the procedures established to tabulate the answers to the 14 questions have been completed.
