The GFMEDC heads out to regional primary-sector businesses in Cass and Clay Counties to ask questions, inform companies about our services and get to the heart of what’s working and what challenges each company might be facing.
The current trends aren’t surprising. The local economy is strong. The agricultural industry faces potential challenges relating to sugar prices and changes to the farm bill. Finally workforce attraction and talent alignment continue to be a challenge for many local companies.
The GFMEDC has been able to connect with companies on expansion opportunities, workforce issues and have connected many companies with other organizations and city representatives to solve challenges.
