MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Changes in West Virginia's economic landscape will be explored this week at the 20th annual Economic Outlook conference.
The event is Tuesday at the Embassy Suites in Charleston.
Andy Bauer of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond's Baltimore branch will lay out the national picture.
Economists with the West Virginia University Bureau of Business and Economic Research will then give their predictions on the outlook for the state.
John Deskins took over the bureau earlier this year. He says the conference will focus on important topics such as job and population growth, which industries are growing and which aren't, and West Virginia exports.
