NEW JERSEY BUSINESSES MORE OPTIMISTIC ABOUT THE STATE’S ECONOMY
May 18, 2012
The New Jersey Chamber of Commerce says business leaders apparently are more optimistic about the state’s economy than they were a year ago.
A survey conducted by the organization found two-thirds of members expect their revenues to improve in the coming year, compared with 57 percent last year, and more than half anticipate more profits. But most members expect their workforce to be steady, similar to last year’s survey findings.
Nearly two-thirds believe Gov. Chris Christie’s national prominence is good for economic development in the Garden State. More than two-thirds said the state’s business climate has improved since Christie took office in 2009.
