Lagniappe Living in Lake Charles, Louisiana: December 2011

Southwest Louisiana has a Strong Economic Outlook for 2012 and 2013


Lake Charles has been recognized as a leader in the Southwest Louisiana region in our market size for total number of project growth.

The Chamber SWLA is part of the Economic Development Alliance and the Chamber SWLA was named Louisiana's Chamber of the Year!  The SWLA Chamber was also awarded Five Star Certification by the U.S. Chamber.  This designation is the highest level of performance awards.  Of almost 7,000 chambers in the nation, only 75 have earned this designation.  That puts the Chamber SWLA in the top 1 percent of chambers in the country! 

A recent Louisiana Economic Outlook report projects 2,500 new jobs for 2012 and another 2,700 jobs in 2013.  That is an increase of 5.6 percent over the next two years!

Our region here in Southwest Louisiana continues to experience economic growth. The Lake Charles American Press recently published an article about Southwest Louisiana leading the state in economic development!

 

  • Sasol announced a new project earlier this Fall.  The new Sasol facility will employ 850 people when it is complete in 2014 and employ many construction workers in the next two years. Other projects include:
  • Mojito Pointe
  • Port of Lake Charles expansion

Lake Charles has a positive outlook heading into the New Year and economic development is good news!

HAPPY NEW YEAR SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA!
