Report out on Wisconsin's economic future


A new report is out on Wisconsin's economic future.

The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation commissioned the report and released it Tuesday.

The WEDC plans to travel to Wausau and Rhinelander to talk about the report, soon.

The study says the three of the state's five largest business sectors have to do with paper and printing,  at a time when demand is driven by paperless technologies, which could leave Wisconsin and its workers vulnerable.

It also says businesses in the state need to think more globally to expand their markets.

On a positive note, the reports cites electrical manufacturing and cheese making as showing growth.
