Job Creation in the New Economy

Submitted By Cheryl Golden

California is the manufacturing engine of the United States and, by extension, the world. The global recession has hit the stateâs economy hard. Over the last year, the Bay Areaâs unemployment rate has fluctuated between 9 and 13 percent. In December 2009, Silicon Valleyâs unemployment rate was almost 12 percent. Virtually every sector of the local economy has been hit as dozens of major employers have reduced their ranks.

Help shape U.S. Job Creation and Export Promotion Strategy. Join local labor leaders and public officials, leading CEOs from Silicon Valleyâs emerging technology areas, and Obama Administration officials to discuss strategies to create well-paying jobs in the Bay Area. Small Business Leaders; Public Officials; Labor Officials; Education Services Providers; Chambers of Commerce and Industry Associations are invited to participate in the forum sponsored by U.S. Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration and U.S. Commercial Service.

Afternoon workshop requires separate registration.

To register contact Manoj Nair at or call (408) 535-2757 ext 106.
