Today's edition of the Mind Your Business podcast series features economic forecasts by Walker College of Business Finance Professor, Dr. Harry Davis, and Mr. Christopher Chung, President/CEO of The Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina.
The audio clips are excerpts from the Jan. 20 High Country Economic Kickoff Breakfast, hosted by the Boone Area and Blowing Rock Chambers of Commerce and presented by Peak Insurance Group with additional sponsorship support from Allen Wealth Management, The Horton Hotel, Appalachian Commercial Real Estate and Skyline National Bank.
In his annual remarks regarding the state of the High Country economic picture, Dr. Davis said, “every piece of economic data you can look at for Watauga County is strong, and that is going to continue. We are lucky to live here and be in an area with such consistent growth.”
