Today Mayor Rogero welcomed attendees to the ETcompetes Symposium sponsored by Plan East Tennessee in partnership with the Knoxville-Oak Ridge Innovation Valley.
The symposium was held from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the East Tennessee History Center.
The symposium brought together a broad spectrum of regional economic stakeholders to talk and work collaboratively to address the challenges and opportunities facing our region in the future, and to find ways to encourage and advance regional economic competitiveness in East Tennessee.
By taking on our education, health and economic challenges, East Tennessee can improve its prosperity and resilience. Working together, communities in the region stand to gain a competitive edge by capitalizing on and improving the quality of life our region offers.
