Has industrial development in South Dakota been hampered by financial constraints? Will the capital sufficient for future industrial financing needs be available? Focusing on commercial banks and their role in financing industrial development, the study which this bulletin reports specifically sought:
1 . to describe the structure, past, and probable future growth of manufacturing and processing industries in South Dakota.
2. to determine to what extent industrial firms are hampered by lack of funds for construction of new facilities, for expansion of present facilities, and for operating expenses; and to determine the basis of restriction.
3. to determine the present role of commercial banks in financing industrial development.
4. to determine attitudes that bankers have toward industrial development within their community and their attitudes and policies in financing this development.
5. to explore the potential and future role of the commercial banks in financing industrial development.
