June 30: Attracting Jobs

Thursday - 6/30/2011, 4:57pm  ET

The D.C. region needs to focus on attracting more non-local, private businesses, which currently only make up about 12 percent of the economy. These types of companies would ideally account for 16 percent of Washington's economy, according to Stephen Fuller an Economist at George Mason University. He tells the Connection Newspapers, "These companies don't have to be here. Over a longer time frame, attracting these businesses is what is going to make the D.C. area grow or not."
