Staff Report

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The North Carolina congressional delegation will co-host the 2016 North Carolina Business & Economic Development Summit that will take place on Sept. 12 and Sept. 13 in Washington, D.C.

The summit seeks to advance legislative policies to increase business growth and create more good-paying jobs.

“Small businesses are the backbone of our economy with nearly half of North Carolina’s workers employed by them,” said Davis Rouzer, a Republican who represents the 7th District, which used to include part of Robeson County. “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 schedule is still being finalized but attendees can expect to hear from guest speakers including members of the North Carolina House and Senate delegation.
