Panel Discussion:
Getting the wheels turning: Is Arizona poised for a future as a manufacturing and logistics hub?

 

Manufacturing and logistics industries play a significant role in the U.S. Economy. As the growth of international trade places continued pressure on American seaports and their immediate markets, other regional markets will emerge as hotspots for the production and movement of goods into and out of those ports, along Arizona key commerce corridors, and across the country.


Key factors in determining these growth markets will include labor, operational cost competitiveness, productivity, supplier networks and government policies. With this in mind, Arizona looks to make a strong bid to strengthen these sectors and solidify its position as a regional hub for the manufacturing and logistics industries.

Our panel of experts will discuss Arizona’s future as a hub for manufacturing and logistics and what business and economic development leaders are doing to ensure viability in these industries going forward.
