Representatives of a number of local businesses gathered Tuesday at Bear Paw Development to discuss the effectiveness of the state’s existing economic development program and programs, incentives or initiatives may be needed in the future.
Bear Paw Development Executive Director Paul Tuss said the NextGen Economics meeting is part of a push to look to the future.
“It’s a statewide initiative to really focus on what does the next generation of economic development programs look like,” he said. “What are the hurdles we have in economic development and what is the vitality?”
