Arizona Chamber on Growth and Impact of New Tariffs, NAFTA Talks

Union Pacific also discusses investments to the region and its role in the state's trade industry

Arizona's economy is forecast to grow, according to economists at the University of Arizona Eller College of Management. The college's second quarter economic outlook projects in 2018 the state will continue to add jobs, residents and income at a similar pace as last year.

Garrick Taylor, with the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, reflected on Arizona's growth. He also discussed how new tariffs and NAFTA renegotiations could be detrimental to the state's trade industry.

We also got a better sense of how one company views Arizona's economic potential through Union Pacific's Dan Harbeke. The company has nearly 700 miles of track across the state and spent more than $200 million over the last five years to fortify that infrastructure.
