Results of the 70th Semiannual Economic Forecast

Economic growth in the United States will continue in 2006, say the nation's purchasing and supply management executives in their 70th Semiannual Economic Forecast.

Expectations for 2006 are at relatively high levels for both manufacturing and non-manufacturing sectors. While both sectors are optimistic about 2006, revenues are expected to grow more strongly in non-manufacturing industries than in the manufacturing sector.

These projections are part of the forecast issued by the Business Survey Committee of the Institute for Supply Management™ (ISM). The forecast was released today by Norbert J. Ore, C.P.M., chair of the ISM Manufacturing Business Survey Committee, and group director, strategic sourcing and procurement, Georgia-Pacific Corporation; and by Ralph G. Kauffman, Ph.D., C.P.M., chair of the ISM Non-Manufacturing Business Survey Committee and coordinator of the supply chain management program at the University of Houston-Downtown.
