Establishing a Coalition of Regional Partners at Economic Development Roundtable

osten biz roundtable
Recently, I held a first-of-its-kind economic development roundtable that brought together lawmakers from both southeastern Connecticut and western Rhode Island, along with business, education and community partners, to start the dialogue about how our two states--which share an economy--can better partner together in the future.

The roundtable was by all accounts a complete success, and we were able to start talks on how to better educate the workforce for the jobs of the future in areas like manufacturing and technology, promote Connecticut and Rhode Island tourism as a package, and try to find areas where we can work together across the state line--rather than competing with one another.

This three-hour brainstorming session sparked a multitude of solid ideas that we plan to delve deeper into over quarterly meetings of our group.
