AZ Chamber: state’s economic recovery uneven, but promising

A discussion with outgoing Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry President Glenn Hamer.

Arizona’s economic recovery has been uneven with some sectors better off than others. Economists at the University of Arizona noted that as of December the state replaced nearly 70% of the nearly 295,000 jobs lost between February and April of last year. While trade and transportation saw strong gains, leisure and hospitality remain in a rut. We discussed these trends with Glenn Hamer, the outgoing president of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Hamer also discussed why he believes the state is poised to make a full recovery before the end of 2021.
