Rural recovery 'well under way'

THE rural economy is firmly in recovery as growth has spread from non-farming businesses to the farming sector, according to the latest Rural Economy Index.

The index, which is a barometer of businesses in the countryside, has shown continued improvement for the rural economy during the third quarter of 2013.

Country, Land and Business Association president Henry Robinson said: “Rural areas were last to enter the recession so it is good news that recovery in the rural economy is now firmly rooted.”
