With all the dire statistics being reported in the media at the moment, thought it might be interesting to get some frontline reports of our own.
I am in civil infrastructure construction and work in the mining, public and private sectors Australia wide.
Right now we have come off a record year in 2008 and our order book remains strong and is growing, across all sectors. The level of enquiries is also very strong. I have talked to others in my business, suppliers/competitors/partners and they are all fairly relaxed just now.
Based on our current position, I'm still predicting robust profitability for 2009. The outlook seems to be OK.
What's it like in your industry and workplace right now?
