Georgia Economic Outlook Series Kickoff

“Many of the same forces that contributed specifically to Georgia’s growth in the past two years will be even stronger in 2017,” said Dean Benjamin C. Ayers at the Georgia Economic Outlook series kickoff in Atlanta. “First, Georgia has even more projects in its economic development pipeline. Second, Georgia’s economy will get more leverage from the housing recovery than the national economy. Third, Georgia’s manufacturers will continue to do better than U.S. manufacturers. Fourth, Georgia will see faster population growth.” Learn more about the forecast or register for an event near you.
