TJCOG Regional Summit 2018

Economic Growth Knows No Boundaries

In our region, neither growth nor the labor force stop at jurisdictional lines. It is critical for local government to view economic development and strategies for economic growth as regional priorities. Recently, Triangle J Council of Governments was designated an Economic Development District through a partnership with EDA that aims to strengthen economic development on a regional scale. In this new role, TJCOG will work to coordinate and connect local strategies that bring companies and new jobs to the region. The 2018 Regional Summit will focus on the impacts of our region's economic growth, and examine how partnerships can help communities adapt and remain strong moving forward.
