    Promising vs up-and-coming

    Dear Teachers

    A promising/up-and-coming industry, which adjective: 1) promising or 2) up-and-coming is stronger or more positive?

    Please advise.

    Regards

    Anthony the learner

    Re: Promising vs up-and-coming

    A promising industry sounds quite unnatural to me.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
