KUSA - Colorado will continue on the road to recovery and add a variety of jobs in 2014 across almost all business sectors.

That's the finding of the University of Colorado-Boulder's Leeds School of Business 2014 Economic Outlook.

"With Colorado's skilled workforce, high-tech diversified economy, relatively low cost of doing business and exceptional quality of life, the state is poised for long-term economic growth," CU economist Rich Wobbekind writes in the report.

Wobbekind expects Colorado will add 61,300 jobs next year, compared with a gain of about 66,900 jobs this year. Despite the decline, Wobbekind isn't worried and he predicts Colorado will be in the top five states for job growth in 2014.

The strongest sector for projected job growth in Colorado in 2014 is the professional and business services sector. The information sector is expected to struggle the most, which includes publishing and communications.
