BRAMNICK SAYS BIA SURVEY SHOWS BUSINESSES BELIEVE STATE IS HEADED IN RIGHT DIRECTION

The 2013 fall Business Outlook Survey conducted by the New Jersey Business & Industry Association (NJBIA) released today indicates 19 percent of respondent companies plan to hire more employees next year, which is a positive trend for job creation. This net increase is the highest level in the last five years as reported by BIA.

“The positive ratings in the BIA survey are the latest evidence that New Jersey is creating a more friendly business environment and companies are optimistic about hiring more employees in our state,” commented Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick, R-Union, Morris and Somerset. “Companies recognize the proactive efforts being made by Governor Christie and his administration to attract and keep jobs in New Jersey. They are also aware that progress is being made on reducing the red tape that has hindered economic development in the past. It is a great sign that companies are confident about their future in our state and shows the governor’s commitment to economic development is working.”

The poll results also showed a majority of companies have a positive view of New Jersey when compared to other states. A majority of companies say New Jersey is better than or the same as other states, in promoting economic development, controlling energy costs, its attitude toward business, attracting new business, controlling government spending, and timely issuance of permits. Fours years ago, New Jersey fared poorly when compared to other states in all of these issue areas.
