UHERO County Economic Forecast: County Economies Steadily Slowing

The overall outlook for Hawai‘i’s county economies is for continued slowing along a path that has been evident since at least the middle of 2005. The pace of slowing will vary, depending on relative stage in the construction cycle, health of each county’s tourism market, and other factors. By 2008, it is expected that each of the four counties will have slowed to a pace that is broadly consistent with sustainable trend growth.
