Tuesday, February 14, 2017
Manufacturing in Minnesota is headed in the right direction.
That positive outlook was captured in the annual joint survey by DEED and the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis.
The Minnesota Manufacturing Business Conditions Survey of 262 manufacturing operations found 90 percent expecting production levels to increase or stay the same in 2017.
Eighty-six percent of respondents expect orders to increase or stay the same in 2017, and 89 percent expect exports to increase or stay the same.
