BR projected to add 9,000 jobs by the end of 2014

quote:

The Baton Rouge economy is projected to add 9,000 jobs by the end of 2014, thanks to the booming petrochemical industry. That forecast could be even brighter, if some potential projects come through. That’s according to the “Louisiana Economic Outlook: 2013 and 2014” prepared by Loren Scott, a retired LSU economics professor, and Jim Richardson, the John Rhea Alumni Professor of Economics at LSU. The forecast, released Wednesday, projects Baton Rouge will add 5,000 jobs in 2013 and 4,000 in 2014. There is at least $4.1 billion in ongoing or announced petrochemical construction projects in metro Baton Rouge. “This is a good place to be,” Scott said during a presentation of the forecast at Crowne Plaza Hotel. “This is a very conservative forecast. If several projects hit, this could be sillingly conservative.”

Among the projects announced for Baton Rouge are $700 million in expansions at Dow Chemical plants in Plaquemine and in St. Charles Parish


Saint Charles Parish is part of the NOLA metro, is it not?

That forecast could be even brighter, if Obama loses the upcoming election.

But Iberville is....

Just seems poorly worded.

I'd like to see other industries aside from petrochemical flourish.
