    The business community is feeling downbeat

    The business community is feeling downbeat


    Business confidence is back down to March 2020 levels, with 62 percent of businesses expecting economic conditions to deteriorate.

    She says border restrictions loosening could change that.

    Leung says the skill shortages could start to be alleviated.
