Economic indicators look positive in Inland Empire, but coronavirus is causing concern, according to new CSUSB reportFontana Herald NewsMarch 6, 2020 Several economic indicators are looking positive in the Inland Empire, but the coronavirus threat is causing some concern among local manufacturing companies, according to a recent survey. The new Inland Empire Report on Business said that the local Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) registered 57.0 percent in February, up slightly from January's 54.4 percent. 'This is the fifth month in a row that the index has remained above the baseline 50 percent mark. Normally with these numbers we would feel relatively confident forecasting that the manufacturing sector and the economy as a whole are in growth mode.
