In general, business confidence indices are a large group of macroeconomic indicators reflecting the current state and future prospects of doing business in the country. These are some of the earliest indicators for assessing the economic situation, so their role as leading indicators is especially important. There are many different indices reflecting business conditions and managers' expectations about the future: indices of current conditions – to understand the existing sentiment; indices of expectations – to predict future prospects; indices of industry and service sector indices; indices of new orders, employment, supplies, prices, etc. A significant part of business planning is based on these data.
