On this podcast, we talk about all matters related to economic development – and why it matters.

Join us as we interview private and public sector experts in economic development strategies to discuss how local stakeholders can work together to compete in the global marketplace. We discuss how we can best compete in the global economy and build a sustainable and prosperous economy to enhance the quality of life for the people in our communities. Economic Development Matters is a platform to share knowledge, policy and research related to economic development and foreign investment attraction.
