U.S. Rep. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., is sponsoring an economic summit meeting March 7 in Indianapolis.
The meeting, titled “Playing to Win: Indiana’s Future as America’s Manufacturing,” will be held at the Ivy Tech Community College’s North Meridian Campus on the city’s north side. Registration begins at 8:15 a.m. and the event will conclude by noon.
The summit meeting is designed to discuss the Hoosier manufacturing tradition and how Hoosiers can innovate in order to continue to lead in this field.
“At this event, I will be hosting experts in the manufacturing sector from around the state of Indiana. Leaders from the automotive industry, trade representatives, business professors and other manufacturing professionals from across the sector who will gather to share ideas and best practices for out-working and out-innovating the competition,” he states in an invitation.
The first panel, titled “Racing Toward Tomorrow: A Sector-Specific Profile of the Automotive Industry,” will tackle the current status of the automotive industry in Indiana and how Hoosiers can continue to lead in this field.
The second panel, titled, “Developing a Winning Game Plan: Policy Prescriptions for Continued Growth,” will cover the future of the manufacturing sector more broadly and panelists will cover topics such as retooling, workforce training, trade imbalances and market trends.
All panelists will focus on Indiana’s role as a current and future leader in this sector and there will be time for a question and answer session with the audience for each panel.
