Fresno will host the 8th CA Economic Summit in November, and the two-day event will include an announcement by California Gov. Gavin Newsom.
“Newsom has chosen the 2019 Summit as the venue where he’ll announce plans for revitalizing inland California’s economy,” states a press release from CA Fwd, which is putting on the event Nov. 7-8 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Fresno Convention Center.
“ In partnership with CA Fwd, his Regions Rise Together initiative will bring together diverse leaders in every region over the next year,” the release continues.
This is the first year the summit will be held in the Central Valley. Prior locations have included San Jose, Sacramento and San Diego.
CA Fwd is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization working to improve California’s economy and other, related issues including housing, jobs and improving government performance.
“CA Fwd believes that every region in the state must have a voice to ensure their economic prosperity. In addition, we believe that increased emphasis on accountability and transparency will create a government that Californians deserve and expect,” another press release from the organization states.
Topics for the Fresno event will include attracting more quality jobs to the state, improving Californians’ workforce preparation, building more housing and addressing the state’s infrastructure needs.
