San Diego is no longer just a Navy town with beautiful beaches. Our economy has diversified into several key sectors: tourism, military and the emerging innovation industries of IT, cleantech and biotech.
As the world economic outlook teeters back and forth we see the potential for the greater region of southern California become more strategic to international trade. We also see a concerted effort by industry to look closer to home for means of manufacturing. What does this mean for our innovation sector?
Plans to expand the convention center have been discussed for some time. Will we see continued growth that calls for such an investment?
Will federal sequestration cost San Diego tens of thousands of jobs? How will this effect our small business owners and the average citizen?
We continue to see growth in the real estate market and unemployment rates are below the national average. Have we turned the corner toward sustainable growth? What is the plan for the next5-15 years? How resilient is today's San Diego economy?
Join us and our 2 special guests who are at the center of these future plans.
