From the desk of Jill Meyer
Congratulations to our friends at REDI for bringing what could add-up-to more than 1,400 jobs to our region through business expansion and relocation. REDI’s work is supporting greater Cincinnati as a hub for innovation and spurring more than $22 million in private investment.
Job creation is likely one of the goals in diversity proposals we’ll soon see from the city. This is an area the Chamber, its Minority Business Accelerator and the private sector have actively been addressing for quite some time. Leveling the playing field for women- and minority-owned firms is crucial in making our region more competitive.
I’m also urging you to contact your Congressional representative on three key issues; transportation, reviving the Export-Import Bank, and making tax extenders permanent. Get further details in the Chamber/Enquirer opinion piece.
