CBIA survey: Cost of doing business in Connecticut is increasing

A new survey by the CBIA shows that Connecticut business leaders have concerns about doing business in the state.
  • 91% say the cost of doing business is increasing.
  • 1 in 10 say the state's business climate is improving.
  • A third says it's getting worse.
  • Nearly half of those surveyed say the greatest obstacle to growth is a lack of skilled job applicants. That's up seven points from last year.
CBIA says "This year’s survey responses confirm the pandemic’s legacy: rapidly evolving perceptions and understanding of logistics and supply chain systems, business models, consumer behavior, careers, and the workplace."
CBIA surveyed over 3,000 top business executives for this survey.
