CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - The Charleston area economy and its population are expected to continue to grow through the end of the decade.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reports (https://bit.ly/1Ept6gO ) that the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce and the College of Charleston School of Business and Economics released their economic outlook for 2015 Wednesday.

The report notes that 43 people are moving to the region each day and the area will have about 25,000 new jobs by the end of the decade. Ten thousand of those jobs are expected in the next two years.

The Chamber’s senior vice president Mary Graham says growth brings challenges.

She says the region will have to find ways to provide companies with trained workers for jobs in software, engineering and other industries.
