Message from Fred Eisenberger appears in Economic Report Inside the Globe and Mail
The coronavirus pandemic has meant it has been anything but “business as usual” for any of us. As much as the pandemic has been a public health challenge, it has also been an economic challenge, Thankfully, our investment community has made a tremendous contribution to helping to keep our economy running.
Already this year, and despite the challenges of the pandemic, there has been over $1 billion in building permit values in our community, a value that has propelled over the $11 billion mark in the past decade, and speaks to the economic vitality of our community.
Within these pages you will learn about foreign direct investment interest in Hamilton, the international attention our community is garnering, the major global investors like Amazon and DHL that are now calling Hamilton home and the burgeoning tech scene in our research park and in our downtown. In all, these are stories that point to a sense of great momentum that continues despite the situation surrounding us all.
I encourage you to share these stories with your networks and of course if you are truly interested in investing in one of Canada’s leading economies, I and the team from Hamilton Economic Development are ready to talk.
Mayor Fred Eisenberger
