Prince George’s State of the County Breakfast

Company News

Last Thursday, the Prince George’s County Economic Development Corporation hosted a breakfast event at Colony South Hotel & Convention Center in Clinton, MD. It was a fantastic event with speeches from Prince George’s County elected officials about what’s been happening in the county and where it’s going from here. EDC President & CEO Gwen McCall talked about bringing in international business and announced that the entire county is now a Foreign Trade Zone. She also discussed Youth@Work, a summer employment program, and encouraged area businesses to use it to hire youth for the summer. We were also treated to an overview of the new EDC branding campaign, Experience, Expand, and Explore Prince George’s County.

There is a lot of activity going on in the county, from the potential FBI headquarters to MGM’s $925 million casino and resort at National Harbor. In fact, the county has $6 billion worth of development projects in the pipeline!

County Executive Rushern Baker focused on how education impacts economic development, “schools are paramount to our economic success. We can’t afford to lose sight… We need strong school systems to attract new residents and businesses.”

His entire speech can be watched here.
