New Numbers Predict Strong Growth In Local Economy In 2013


Springfield business leaders are touting new numbers that show growth in the local economy… and high hopes for the year ahead. 

 

Chamber of Commerce CEO Steward Sandstrom says private-sector employment in the greater Springfield area is now back to where it was five years ago, prior to the recession… and is within just a few hundred jobs of the all-time high set back in 2000.  But public sector employment continues to lag well behind its former levels. 

 

In spite of that, another study… the Springfield Enterprise Index… predicts as much as 16% growth in the local economy over the next 12 months.
