Economic forecast for West Virginia: Sluggish growth in 2012

West Virginia is expected to post modest job growth in 2012, according to the latest forecast from the West Virginia University College of Business and Economics. The forecast was released at the 18th Annual West Virginia Economic Outlook Conference in Charleston.

"The state's continued growth will be a big improvement over the huge job losses during the 2009 recession," said Dr. George Hammond, associate director of the Bureau of Business and Economic Research in the College.
