South Florida Economic Outlook 2015: Much to be Excited About

Mike Seemuth, Daily Business Review

Interviewed by Mike Seemuth for a February 3rd article in the Daily Business Review on South Florida Economic Outlook for 2015, Tony Villamil, WEG Founder and Principal said "South Florida is finishing 2014 with all the cylinders running at a high rate."  He added that the strongest sectors of trhe South Florida economy this year will be Construction, Retail, Tourism and their supported industries.  In addition, he also said that robust international trade in 2015 is unlikely due to a mixed economic outlook abroad, "Central America and the  Dominican Republic are doing well, but the Euro Zone is almost in a recession, and the Japanese economy already is in recession. Economic growth this year will be moderate in such South American countries as Brazil, Colombia, Chile and Peru, and perhaps non-existent in Argentina and Venezuela."
