“There is an undeniable momentum in South Jersey when it comes to business” NJBIA President and CEO Michele Siekerka told SouthJersey.com recently. Plenty of leaders in the area share that point of view.
The news website recently published its outlook from 18 industry leaders from the area.
“Once again, we asked professionals to predict how this region will develop relative to their industry, and with an ever-changing economy, it will be interesting to see how this area transforms in 2019 and in years to come,” the website stated.
NJBIA was in a good position to contribute. The association had hosted its Eds and Meds summit in Camden because of that regions ability to leverage its education and healthcare institutions for impressive levels of economic development.
“You can find it in the transformation of the waterfront in Camden; the growth of the health care and education industries and the vibrancy of the tech community, sparked by Rowan University and Rutgers-Camden University; the manufacturing, commerce and professional services operations throughout places like Haddonfield, Cherry Hill or Marlton; or the job creation we’re seeing as part of Atlantic City’s rebirth,” Siekerka said.
