Longview Partnership Holds Annual Luncheon

A meeting of business leaders was all about finding a positive outlook for the business future of Longview. Members of the "Longview partnership" met to talk about the city's business economy. With a well trained work force and a diverse economy in manufacturing, oil and gas, Longview has a lot of what corporations are looking for. The event's keynote speaker, economist Ray Perryman, says that spells prosperity for the East Texas area.

"I think there's good news for Longview and Tyler as well as the East Texas area, we're seeing obviously the mineral activity picking up and higher oil and natural gas prices and that's always good news for this region, growth in core service industries demand for products produced here picking up some, so a lot of positive factors out there right now," says Perryman.

Over 4-hundred people turned out for today's luncheon at Maude Cobb activity center.
