The economic forecast for Maine is looking bright according to experts at the Maine Real Estate & Development Association’s (MEREDA) annual Forecast Conference on January 23 in Portland. The day-long event featured a welcome address from Sen. Angus King and nine forecast presentations about which areas of Maine’s economy are expected to grow in 2014, all in front of a standing room-only crowd gathered in Portland.
Initial projections show Portland and Bangor markets should grow substantially.
“The data we’ve tracked suggests the greater Portland industrial market has fully rebounded from the recession.
