Squire and Company, Certified Public Accountants, and the Provo/Orem Chamber of Commerce will be surveying local businesses during the month of December to determine attitudes of business leaders in the area.

The "Business Climate Survey" will contain questions to determine how local business leaders feel about business prospects and problems for 1991. It will measure how business leaders feel about the short term future of their own business, the business environment of Utah County and the expected state of the United States economy for the next 12 months.The survey will also measure expectations regarding profits; increases or decreases in employment levels; the most difficult positions for an employer to fill; expectations for investments in new equipment, products or services; business relocations; and determining the major concerns of local business leaders.

The results will be presented at a Provo/Orem Chamber of Commerce general membership meeting in January or February.
