BNP Members Not Optimistic on New York State’s Economy

The Buffalo Niagara Partnership is releasing the findings of their yearly member and advocacy survey. We’ve compiled the survey results into a Member Pulse Report. The results show employers are optimistic about Buffalo’s economy, but not positive on New York State’s economy.

“It is this constant barrage of, you know, the new cost or expense, and regulations really coming from Albany, that just are creating that sense of concern that we really are not foundationally changing the business climate here,” and Gallagher-Cohen says, “the state ranks 49th out of 50 in business unfriendliness.”

Learn more about the results from our annual advocacy and membership survey in our first-ever Member Pulse Report, which details how Buffalo Niagara employers view the local and state economy, and identifies employers’ pain points, areas of concern and obstacles to growth.
