From Insider, today:

Sentiment amongst Scottish businesses is showing signs of improvement as lockdown restrictions begin to ease, according to a survey of Scottish companies. The Addleshaw Goddard Scottish Business Monitor, produced with the Fraser of Allander Institute, also found that the volume of business activity is expected to recover significantly over the rest of the year, despite the economic uncertainty.


However, there is encouragement to be found in the survey data. Nearly half of companies say they expect no change to their workforces and 61% of companies described their cashflow position as secure or very secure for the next six months.
