DURHAM, N.C. (AP) – Business and industry leaders are gathering to discuss how the state’s economy may perform in 2016 as everyone eyes elections later this year.

The North Carolina Bankers Association and North Carolina Chamber are hosting their annual Economic Forecast Forum Wednesday in Durham. It’s the 14th year many of the state’s most powerful and influential leaders have assembled to talk about what changes could be ahead.

Gov. Pat McCrory and Piedmont Natural Gas CEO Thomas Skains were among the highlighted scheduled speakers. Skains plans to retire when the sale of his Charlotte-based company is completed later this year by Duke Energy, McCrory’s former employer and the country’s largest electric company.
