Each year, business and government leaders gather for the unveiling of Edmonton Economic Development’s Statement of Intent, in which we share our strategies for future economic growth in the Edmonton region.
At the sold out luncheon on Tuesday, January 14, 2014, president and CEO Brad Ferguson spoke about the organization’s progress over the past year and reiterated the organization’s commitment to the vision of Edmonton as Canada’s economic and entrepreneurial powerhouse.
“This is a new Edmonton, with a new confidence and a new energy,” says Ferguson. “The only way forward is to embrace the mantra of: cleaner, greener, safer, faster, cheaper. We need to build our industries and build our entrepreneurs, and activate the country in doing so.”
Edmonton’s Mayor Don Iveson joined Ferguson for a discussion around Edmonton, its renewed vibrancy, and its future, and both answered questions from Edmonton’s business community.
