Tuesday, June 26, 2018

We are approaching the halfway point of 2018.  Things are going well but what impact might tariffs have? We sit down with a group of experts to give an update on our economic health.

The year is flying by.  We’re almost at the halfway point, which means it is a good time for an economic update on 2018.  The state’s economy is going strong and we’re expected to gain well over a hundred thousand jobs this year with growth continuing. 

But this comes as threats of tariffs and trade wars are in the news and that has left some North Carolina businesses uncertain about the future.
