Topic: The Impact of Immigration on the Local Economy
What is the impact of immigration on the local economy?
Can it help to offset the population decline in this region?
What are the potential positive and negative effects on the local labor market?
Can it help to spur entreprenurial and innovative activity, thereby contributing to local economic growth and development?
What are the immigration trends in Erie so far, and what strategic priorities, if any, do we need to set with respect to immigration?
Join us in examining these issues at the Economic Research Institute of Erie's annual conference for community leaders and interested citizens. Hear from local community and business leaders, practitioners who have worked with immigrants in our region, and a keynote speaker who is an expert on the economics of immigration as we try to understand the interaction and linkages among immigration, government policy, the labor market, and regional economic development. Be part of the conversation with speakers and panelists about the role of immigration and its potential impact on Erie's future.
