Industry cluster development in full swing at LAEDC

By August 12, 2014 No Comments

The LAEDC’s industry cluster development efforts continue to gain momentum as we work to activate business, labor, education and public sector leaders to protect and grow L.A. County’s leading export-oriented industry clusters (e.g., Aerospace & Defense, Entertainment, Biomedical, Education & Knowledge Creation, etc.), which serve as the underlying drivers of regional prosperity since these traded industries expand employment, innovation and trade (exports) well beyond our local needs.

LAEDC’s Carolyn Hull will be leading these efforts, including industry cluster initiatives such as in advanced transportation, via the LAEDC’s e4 Mobility Alliance.

Other effective initiatives targeted at a key industry clusters include the SoCal Aerospace Council, in support of our aerospace and defense industry cluster, and the new LAEDC Bioscience Industry Council, in support of our biomedical industry cluster and its talent development needs.
