Times Union: Area firms expect growth
ALBANY — Even though the struggling economy still doesn't appear to have turned around, Capital Region businesses remain optimistic about the future.
That's according to the 26th annual Business Climate Survey by Marvin and Co. and the University at Albany School of Business.
Last year, 49 percent of the companies surveyed said they expected their businesses to grow; that came true for only 43 percent of them. However, despite their disappointment, once again, 49 percent of the companies surveyed believe business will increase this year.
