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 stateâ€™s economy hard. Over the last year, the Bay Areaâ€™s unemployment rate has fluctuated between 9 and 13 percent. In December 2009, Silicon Valleyâ€™s 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 Valleyâ€™s 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.
