A preview of the report...
The 2012 Technology Industry Report is a regional comparison study that focuses on Southeast Michigan moving from recession to recovery.
While this process has proven more challenging than most would have hoped when the “Great Recession” officially ended in June 2009 – and slow economic growth and persistent unemployment remain burdens at home and abroad – there are signs of improvement in the Detroit region.
Some key findings include several “firsts.” For example, when benchmarked with the 14 regions analyzed in the report, the Greater Detroit region was found to be first in advanced automotive sector employment, the total number of advanced automotive industry establishments, architectural and engineering industry employment, the number of people working in architectural and engineering occupations and first in the number of engineering and engineering technologies degrees completed at colleges and universities in the region.
If this sounds like the kind of good news you would like to share across the region and with your local customers and suppliers, be sure to join us to hear about it first.
