President’s Report: A Great Economy, Plenty Of Smart Partner Organizations And A Wealth Of Opportunities To Grow Our Regional Economy. The EDC Is Thankful!

The Holidays are upon us, and we have so much to be thankful for here in the Fargo Moorhead area! We have an incredible robust economy, a committed and dedicated workforce, an outstanding education system, fantastic arts and entertainment venues and social and non-profit organizations that are second to none!

Every day can be so diverse from working hand in hand with our primary-sector leaders to ensure their continued growth, to sitting down with a start-up entrepreneur and discussing how they can broaden their marketing outreach. We work with education and other non-profit partners to address community needs regarding workforce issues. We also focus on broad community needs like internet/fiber connectivity with government officials and businesses.

The one thing that is always on our agenda, day after day, is new business attraction opportunities to strengthen our existing base. Advanced manufacturing, embedded technology, software development and life sciences are all targeted industry clusters that we believe enhance our growing market and can be supported by our highly-educated and trained workforce.

The Greater Fargo Moorhead community has a great deal to be thankful for, and we at the EDC are thankful to be a part of this dynamic marketplace!

Happy Thanksgiving!
