At the request of the White House, Mayor Richard J. Berry is attending a summit today at the White House in Washington, DC with selected Mayors from around the country to look closely at strategies for competitiveness in manufacturing in our nation’s cities.
Mayors representing manufacturing communities across the United States will have the chance to discuss strategies for competitiveness in manufacturing with Senior Administration officials including National Economic Council Director Gene Sperling, Department of Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker, and Department of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx.
The anticipated job growth is largely contributed to the availability of a skilled work force and low overall operating costs are among the metro area’s strengths that companies cite as influential to their decisions to expand or move into Albuquerque, that according to a recent issue of Site Selection Investment Profile magazine.
The White House Office of Intergovernmental Affairs and the National Economic Council sponsor this event.
