Berkeley County projected to drive region’s population growth through 2030

As the 2010s began, the tri-county was emerging from the Great Recession with the ingredients for a robust economic environment to take hold. Major employers like Boeing, Volvo and Mercedes Benz launched or expanded their presence, the volume at SC Ports would begin a decade-long expansion and Charleston topped list after list for being a top city and destination.
