MIRAMAR BEACH — “We’re coming back.”

That was the crux of the message delivered Tuesday by Jerry Parrish, an economist with the Florida Institute of Government at Florida State University, as he spoke to a crowd of hundreds of business, government and civic leaders at the Florida Power & Light Northwest Florida Economic Symposium at the Baytowne Conference Center at Sandestin.

“We’re recovering from COVID impacts,” said Parrish, who added that moving forward, Florida is “going to be growing jobs faster than the US rate, because Florida has made itself an attractive place for business.”
