New data shows North Carolina is recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on jobs and the economy quicker than other states.
UNC Charlotte presented its annual economic report Friday, including predictions for the new year. And finally, there’s hope on the horizon in North Carolina.
“This is not trending in the wrong direction. This is trending in the right direction,” said John Connaughton, a financial economics professor at UNC Charlotte, who presented the annual report. “There’s no question about it, the coronavirus will continue to dominate the economic picture in 2021, as well.”
