Baxter Caulfield reports private sector growth in Yorkshire

Baxter Caulfield says that Yorkshire and the Humber is bucking the current national economic trend and posting strong growth figures.

The Office for National Statistics announced on 29 April that the UK’s overall GDP had slowed to 0.3% within the first quarter of 2015.

But the Huddersfield firm’s Yorkshire Economic Index has shown that at least  1178 private sector jobs have been created in the region and that an estimated £40 million of new investment has been made by private sector businesses throughout Yorkshire.

Stephen Newman, senior partner at Baxter Caulfield solicitors, said: “There is little doubt that business confidence is on the rise in our region with firms starting to make tangible investment in new infrastructure and job creation.”
