Confidence within the business world is steady among Regina executives.
In its latest report, Economic Development Regina says its Executive Confidence Index shows that the Greater Regina Area execs show that there is optimism for businesses, but it doesn’t come without issue.
David Froh is the VP of Economic Development Regina. He said the whole point of this report is to get those important questions regarding any concerns for business leaders.
“So asked our executives questions about the NAFTA negotiations,” said Froh. “We asked about immigration, about investment traction, reconciliation and use that to inform our strategies and our policies.”
Aside from NAFTA renegotiations, Froh said the future doesn’t look too bad for Regina businesses and the economy, but once again there are concerns.
“We got some economic headwinds here. We have those worries about the challenges of the 25 per cent tariffs on steel and aluminum. But there is an expectation and optimism that the future looks bright.”
