Chamber of Commerce holds economic outlook luncheon

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Business men and women in Savannah got a new perspective on the new year Wednesday thanks to the annual Chamber of Commerce Economic Outlook luncheon at the Savannah Marriot Riverfront.

Charles Knapp from the University of Georgia, along with Dr. Michael Toma from AASU, gave a state, regional and national outlook during the luncheon.

"Small business is rebounding, banking is rebounding, construction is rebounding a little bit," said Savannah Area Chamber CEO Bill Hubbard. "Slowly, healthcare, manufacturing, huge growth in manufacturing. Our friends at SEDA are doing a wonderful job, a lot of diversity in the economy, which is one of the things that protects us in a downturn, and helps us in an upturn."

The report is put together with research from AASU and sponsored by the Savannah Economic Development Authority.
