Guest Editorial - One Southern Indiana (4/30/07)
Hello. I'm Michael Dalby, President & CEO of One Southern Indiana. One Southern Indiana is the voice for Southern Indiana business and the economic development organization that recruits and supports new business growth in the area.
I want to share with you a truly historic announcement for our region that we recently had the pleasure of celebrating. One Southern Indiana is pleased to have formalized a regional economic development agreement with our sister organization in Louisville, Greater Louisville Inc. This agreement officially commits our two organizations to work cooperatively in marketing Greater Louisville and Southern Indiana as a place of prosperity for businesses and organizations of all types -- both those looking to expand their existing presence within our region, as well as businesses seeking to relocate to the Metro area.
Our region stands as a major economic player on a national and global level. And the reasons for this are many. Our strategic location, our access to multiple modes of transportation, tremendous economic opportunities, a talented and qualified work force, and the region's outstanding quality of life and affordable cost of living all position the Louisville - Southern Indiana metro area for economic growth.
We are raising the bar and taking the lead. We're competing globally. And indeed, the world will be watching our success.
I'm Michael Dalby, and that's my...Point of View.
