ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Leaders in Albany met Thursday day to learn about this year's economic outlook from experts.     

Folks from the education, business, and agricultural communities gathered to discuss the potential for growth in Albany.     

Researchers with the UGA Terry College of Business host these meetings throughout the region.   

Experts on various parts of the economy spoke to the group.  "Overall I would anticipate that our overall output, net farm income would most likely be a little bit lower.  On the other side, in terms of our production, looks like we got plenty of rain this year," said Mark Masters of the Flint River Water Planning & Policy Center.     

Agriculture is the number one industry in Georgia.      

Researchers expect employment will rise by .3% in Albany,  or by about 200 jobs.
