High Desert Poised For Next Wave of Growth

As mentioned in the Victorville Daily Press, April 27, 2017, the annual High Desert Economic Summit in Victorville welcomed business, civic and regional leaders who heard several speakers — including keynote speakers economists Sean Flynn and Christopher Thornberg — share their global, national and regional insights on the economy. Thornberg said the High Desert economy looks good in the areas of labor, personal income and sales revenue and that jobs in the medical field, manufacturing, transportation, real estate, education and leisure/hospitality are poised for growth in the High Desert over the next five years. “The High Desert is on the precipice of the next wave of growth,” said Thornberg, who believes population growth and the affordability of land prices will spur activity in the region. As the fourth largest labor force in the nation, the Inland Empire continues to lead the country in job growth, Thornberg said.
