WHEN: Tuesday, March 22, at 4 p.m.

WHERE: Broadcast virtually on LVEDC’s Facebook page

The speech will be presented in lieu of a traditional LVEDC Annual Meeting, although the organization plans to hold an in-person event highlighting the regional economy some time in the fall if public health conditions from the COVID-19 crisis permit.

After the event is broadcast live, it will be available to view on the LVEDC YouTube channel and the LVEDC website.

During his speech, Cunningham will provide an overview of economic activity in 2021 and discuss such topics as economic trends and initiatives, the conditions and opportunities created by the pandemic, and how the Lehigh Valley is positioned to face the economic challenges of the future.

The LVEDC 2021 Annual Report will also be released following the broadcast. The 40-page report highlights economic data and trends, major projects from the past year, target sectors like manufacturing and life sciences, and major LVEDC initiatives such as its talent strategies initiative and Made Possible in Lehigh Valley
