Congressman David Rouzer (NC-07) announced Thursday that he will be joining the entire North Carolina Congressional delegation to co-host the 2016 North Carolina Business & Economic Development Summit. The summit seeks to advance legislative policies to increase business growth and create more good-paying jobs. The summit will take place on Monday, September 12th and Tuesday, September 13th in Washington, D.C.
“Small businesses are the backbone of our economy with nearly half of North Carolina’s workers employed by them,” Rouzer said. “This conference is an opportunity for our chambers of commerce and local business leaders to hear from key individuals throughout the federal government, network with other business leaders throughout the state, and exchange ideas. I look forward to co-hosting this year’s Business & Economic Development Summit.”
The North Carolina Business and Economic Development Summit is an annual event and takes place on the campus of the U.S. Capitol. The 2016 schedule is still being finalized but attendees can expect to hear from guest speakers including members of the North Carolina House and Senate delegation.
