AUGUSTA, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- What are the factors that help Maine's economy grow and what are the things that can slow it down?

The answers can be found in this report which was turned over to the Governor's office and to Maine Legislators.

It is put together by the Maine Economic Growth Council, a non partisan panel made up of state and local officials as well as business leaders.

The report has been released annually now for the past two decades. State Senator Eloise Vittelli has been on the council for most of that time. Overall she says this year's report is better than the past few years.

"You really have to look at it whole and that is challenging to do, but if you do that I think you'll see that Maine is making progress", she said.

Economic indicators show improvement in eight areas, while the state has slipped in four others.
