Lethbridge Business and Industry Associations Partner to Provide Perspective on Area Economy

In light of recent global economic negativity seven of the city’s major associations came together to provide perspective on the area economy, based on information they have gathered through their resources, their members and various economists.

Cheryl Dick, CEO of Economic Development Lethbridge, says, “As we’ve reviewed the implications on the local economy, we have come to the conclusion this part of southern Alberta is in one of the strongest positions in the country. This doesn’t mean we are immune to challenges in the year ahead, but with the diversity and stability of our regional economy, we are encouraging a balanced perspective in the media and in our response to this situation.”
