Relaunching NYC’s Economy: What Industries Are Poised to Lead the Recovery?

About this webinar

In recent months, New York’s economic development officials have focused attention and resources on ensuring that the city’s existing businesses are able to survive the worst of this economic crisis. But city and state officials will soon need to begin nurturing industries that have significant potential for future job growth—and are poised to lead the city's economic recovery. This forum will explore what comes next for New York’s economy and examine the most promising opportunities to regain strength. Panelists will discuss which industries are best positioned for growth coming out of the pandemic, what local economic development officials can do to make sure New York captures a significant share of the job creation in those sectors, how to ensure that New York doesn’t lose ground in promising industries, and how best to harness the city’s economic assets to spark an inclusive and lasting economic recovery.
