Forum on area growth and development held in Wilmington

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Jobs and economic prospects in the Cape Fear Region — that was the topic at Wednesday night’s forum called Cape Fear Forward: A Forum on Growth and Development hosted by the StarNews.

The event kicked off Wednesday at Cape Fear Community College’s Union Station.

Panelists for the forum included economic development recruiters and experts from Brunswick, New Hanover and Pender counties.

One of the panelists, Pender County Commissioner David Williams said the area has experienced a surge in economic development recently.

“This is a great region and I’m glad to see we have folks from these different communities represented in Si’s event here today because you can’t let county lines or city limit signs get in the way of a lot of decisions when it effects the region,” Williams said.

The forum was a community outreach program of the StarNews.
