Event Description:

Louisiana First Business Summit 

As Louisiana enters 2019, there is strong momentum and many reasons for being excited about what we can accomplish. Our state budget is stable. Employment is healthy, with more than 2 million people working. Louisiana’s personal income growth for the first two quarters of 2018 was among the highest in the nation. The state’s Gross Domestic Product is strong at around $250 billion. And at every level of state government, we are providing vital services to improve the quality of life for all Louisiana citizens.

There is still plenty of work ahead of us, but Louisiana is on the right track and we are continuing to build economic momentum for our state. With the 2019 legislative session approaching, this is a good time to take stock of where we are – and where we are heading. Our state’s business leaders have a particular interest in getting a topline view of our progress and successes since January 2016 and our outlook for the future. 

Please join the Governor and your fellow cabinet members on February 20 and 21 for the Louisiana First Business Summit. An invitation-only evening reception and then the daylong summit will provide a unique opportunity for key private-sector decision-makers to interact with our team at this exciting time.
