Will N.C. see growth in 2012?

Gross Domestic ProductAccording to UNC Charlotte economist John Connaughton, he thinks so.

Connaughton believes North Carolina’s economy will grow 1.7% in 2012.  This is up 1.3% percent from this year.  The Article from the Charlotte Business Journal mentions the 11 of North Carolina’s 15 economic sectors are set for growth during 2012.  Business and professional services are projected to increase 5.4% and the finance, insurance and real estate is projected to increase 3.8%.  Connaughton also expects a job increase of 38,000 in 2012.  You can read the full article here.

The reference to growth in the upcoming year is a welcome one and one I hope is a true understatement for the upcoming year. 

As you finish up 2011 and put it behind us, I am sure you are making your 2012 plans and projections.  How is 2012 looking for you?
