A survey of 250 Maryland business leaders showed revenues increased slightly in the second quarter over the first three months of the year.
Those findings in the the Maryland Business Climate Survey released Monday show the state’s economy remains positive, but all that could change depending on trade and tariff issues and workforce development.
“I think that the economy is still positive, but there has been a lot of uncertainty,” said Richard Clinch, director of the University of Baltimore’s Jacob France Institute. “We don’t know if it’s going up or down.”
The Maryland Business Climate Survey revealed that the uptick in business revenues was 2 percent over the first three months this year. Yet those gains lagged behind the revenues reported in the final quarter of 2018.
