BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) - The New River Gorge Regional Economic Development Summit is set for Thursday at Tamarack.

The event features in-depth discussions of the economic outlook both nationally and in West Virginia. John Deskins, director of the West Virginia University Bureau of Business and Economic Research, says the information discussed at the summit is especially important given the shifting landscape of the energy industry and other changes in the region.

Raymond Owens, senior economist with the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, will present the national and state economic forecasts. Other speakers include Chadwick Wykle of the New River Gorge Regional Development Authority and Kent Spellman of the West Virginia Community Development Hub.
