LAEDC’s board meeting of March 18th featured a discussion of Tariffs, Trump and Trade by LAEDC economist Dr. Somjita Mitra, a presentation about the Port of Long Beach by Dr. Noel Hacegaba, Managing Director of Commercial Operations and Chief Commercial Officer for the Port of Long Beach, as well as a presentation by PwC’s Mike Quindazzi on the future of AI and how it is changing the nature of work.
There was also a discussion of pending legislation in Sacramento that impacts the Los Angeles economy. LAEDC has created a new page on its website to help interested stakeholders track and take action on legislation. From time-to-time, the LAEDC, as the economic development leadership organization for this nation-sized economic region, takes public positions on legislative, administrative law and regulatory matters affect our mission to advance opportunity and prosperity for LA County’s communities and residents. But, success doesn’t come from going it alone, and so we strongly encourage you too to take action on these important matters by calling or emailing the listed legislative officials and offices.
