RALEIGH, N.C. — The Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce discussed on Thursday the economic outlook for the region through 2016 after a year of what it called "exceptional growth."

At the Chamber's annual economic forecast forum, economists said growth in population, affordable housing and employment rates that outpace the state as a whole will help keep the Triangle's economy strong.

Jeffrey Lacker, president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, and Jay Bryson, managing director and global economist at Wells Fargo, spoke at the forum.
