Most readers think Coast economy will slip in 2014

MOST voters in our online poll feel the Fraser Coast's economy will only decline in 2014, despite big-ticket projects such as shopping centre expansions and the new St Stephen's hospital upgrade.

Following predicted job creation in retail and construction and growth in real estate, the Chronicle asked readers what they felt would happen to the economy in the new year.

As of 5pm on Wednesday, more than 45% felt the economy would decline in 2014.

About 26% of voters felt it would stay the same and another 26% felt it would improve during the new year.
