New England Governors to Discuss "Building a 21st Century Economy"
New Hampshire Gov. Jeanne Shaheen (D) and Massachusetts Gov. Paul Cellucci (R) will lead a forum on Oct. 13 to discuss how New England can continue to support its high-technology firms and maintain a high quality of life for citizens.
The conference, "Building a 21st Century Economy," will include a discussion among governors and business leaders focusing on how the public and private sectors can collaborate to ensure a bright economic future for their states and the region.
The forum, sponsored by the National Governors' Association Center for Best Practices and held in Portsmouth, N.H., also will examine three elements of a new economic strategy: creating a climate that nurtures research and development, maintaining a high quality-of-life and building a skilled work force.
