C-Suite Survey: NJ businesses pleased with positive direction of economy, business climate

May 23, 2012

New Jersey CEOs are  increasingly optimistic about the state’s economy and business climate, and many say that their companies plan to grow here this year, according to the results of the New Jersey Economic Policy Summit’s 2012 “C-Suite Survey” (C-Suite VII) of Garden State CEOs.

The findings, presented at the Summit’s fifth annual conference on May 22, show that 81 percent of respondents rate the state’s economy as fair or excellent, and 71 percent say that New Jersey is a fair or excellent place to do business. These figures are up from 34 and 51 percent, respectively, in the 2009 C-Suite Survey.

“Attitudes clearly have gotten better, and based on the survey results we anticipate that this will translate to business growth this year,” noted James W. Hughes, Ph.D., dean of the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, which conducts the survey.
