GOSHEN, Ind. — Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb visited the historic Goshen Theater Wednesday afternoon for the third-quarter meeting of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation.
Each quarter, a city within the Hoosier state is selected to be the host-site of this session, which is open to the public in order to provide transparency as to what economic developments are occurring within the state.
Wednesday’s session featured Governor Holcomb providing updates on various developments including the launch and timeline of the second Regional Economic Acceleration & Development Initiative, AKA the READI 2.0 program.
Governor Holcomb also highlighted how the state was named on Wednesday as one of the top developmental regions in the country within the field of microelectronics.
One point of emphasis during the session was also the acknowledgement that economic programs at the state level often have success largely thanks to close ties to local government officials.
According to officials, Wednesday’s public session was one of the highest attended of any quarterly meeting previously held during Governor Holcomb’s term, which began in 2017.
