|RURAL DEVELOPMENT HOSTS SOUTHWESTERN OREGON JOBS FORUM|
|, Oct 26, 2010
Earlier in 2010, USDA hosted a series of successful Jobs Forums in Oregon to follow up with President Obama’s Job Creation Roundtable. USDA Rural Development was asked to repeat the process in southwestern Oregon to help spur ideas for innovation, creativity and economic development in rural areas and small towns in Oregon’s Coos, Douglas and Curry Counties. The event was held in North Bend on October 26.
Feedback gathered at the forum will be provided to USDA for consideration at the national level. More importantly, the information will help private, local, state and federal interests working here in Oregon to incorporate local feedback, collaborate, and leverage resources to improve local economies.
