In the Spring of 2018, 232 Southeast Alaska business owners and top managers from 27 regional communities responded to Southeast Conference’s Business Climate and Private Investment Survey, answering questions about the economic climate and regional investment. Confidence in the regional business climate has been decreasing. However, looking forward business leaders are optimistic. Businesses in Skagway and Haines reported the brightest outlook in the region. The mining sector reported the most positive industry outlook, followed by the health care, tourism, and real estate industries. This year we added a new question to to our business climate survey: How has the economy impacted your business? We received 140 thoughtful responses from business owners and operators, and we printed these in full by industry. It is the stories "behind the numbers."
