This morning's Pioneer Press has an article highlighting the last night's launch of the Greater MSP Partnership. Read it below.
A new regional group says it wants to ramp up job growth in the Twin Cities.
The leaders of Greater MSP, the Minneapolis-St. Paul Regional Economic Development Partnership, presented their vision for a regional approach to economic development to business and community leaders Tuesday at the Pantages Theatre in Minneapolis.
The private-public partnership, founded in March, said it had been working for six months toward Tuesday's presentation and call to action to business and community leaders to promote the region to companies, workers and tourists.
"We're looking to a national and global marketplace to attract investment and stimulus here for our economy," said Michael Langley, Greater MSP's chief executive, in an interview.
Langley said that the area is expected to gain about 75,000 jobs in the next five years. He said that number is not enough and that his group's goal is to increase it to 100,000 jobs.
