CROWN POINT – Economic forecasts point to a period of growth in the next six months for Northwest Indiana. The report was delivered at the annual meeting of the Construction Advancement Foundation by Michal Pollak, assistant professor of economics at Indiana University Northwest.
“The next six months could see up to a 4.77 percent increase in economic growth,” said Pollak. “An interesting trend in the Gary metro area employment, especially in the steel and health care, industries, serves as strong indicators for the projected growth.
Indiana’s business climate is being cited as a contributor to the positive assessment of the region’s economic development.
