LED says robust IT sector is critical for future of state
Wednesday, January 16, 2019
Louisiana has scored nearly 100 economic development wins since 2016, creating more than 25,000 new jobs and representing more than $26 billion in capital investment for the state, says Louisiana Economic Development Secretary Don Pierson.
Speaking at the American Council of Engineering Companies of Louisiana’s Project Outlook event this afternoon, Pierson touted those wins as evidence of the state’s vibrant and growing economy and of the success of its support organizations, such as LED, whose goal is to attract and sustain business in the state.
“We are hard at work creating more work for you,” Pierson said to the audience of engineering firms at the Renaissance Hotel.
