Economic Outlook for Middle Georgia Looks Promising

The University of Georgia’s ‘Terry College of Business’ says middle Georgia can expect to see economic recovery in the near future.

The College of Business held a luncheon today at the Macon Centreplex. The director of the College of Business, Jeffrey Humphreys, predicts that Macon’s location in the state will allow it to see a recovery over the next two years.

He says that even the Port of Savannah’s financial success will be felt here in Macon, since the interstate runs directly through the city.

Humphreys also said that cities like Warner Robins faired much better in the recession due to the large number of federal jobs.

“Warner Robins actually saw job growth or sustainability for 16 straight years. Almost no metro area in the country has seen that,” he said.

Humphreys said to also expect to see an increase in demand in transportation, logistics, and warehousing.
