Economists: NC poised for continued growth in ’18

Economy Pin

The 16th annual Economic Forecast Forum, sponsored by the North Carolina Chamber and the North Carolina Bankers Association, provided reasons for economic optimism.

A panel — including Harry Davis of the NC Bankers Association, John Connaughton of UNC Charlotte, Mark Vitner of Wells Fargo, and Mike Walden of NC State — agreed that the state’s economy will continue to grow in 2018, and that it will thrive even without landing a so-called “whale,” such as the highly touted Amazon headquarters or a Toyota auto factory.

“North Carolina’s economy is not driven by whales,” said Davis. “We have a very diverse economy.”
