Despite the economic challenges facing businesses, 25 percent of CEOs in New Jersey said the state is a good-to-excellent place to do business, up from 12 percent in 2010, according to the results of the New Jersey Economic Policy Summit’s 2013 C-Suite Survey of Garden State CEOs.
“Confidence in New Jersey as a place to do business continues to improve,” said James W. Hughes, dean of the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University, which conducts the survey. “In addition, 36 percent of CEOs participating in the survey expect to increase capital spending here over the next year, continuing a positive upward trend seen in earlier surveys.”
