Where We Stand – NYS Executive Budget Proposal

The Buffalo Niagara Partnership detailed our state budget priorities in front of 200 people at our annual Legislative Luncheon.  Our members and many members of the Western New York legislative delegation came together for lunch and conversation at the Marriott in Amherst.  The Partnership detailed where we stand on Governor Cuomo’s Executive Budget proposal – specifically what we support, what we oppose and what we think is missing.

2017 Labor Market Assessment Perspective

Invest Buffalo Niagara has unveiled the much anticipated Buffalo Niagara Labor Market Assessment.  The assessment examines six target industries: Advanced Business Services, Advanced Manufacturing, Agribusiness, Cleantech, Life Sciences, Logistics, and Tourism.  The objective of the report is to illustrate where our regional labor market currently stands and where we are headed over the next several years.  The data included in the report is an opportunity for us to set priorities, make informed decisions, and build collaboratives to improve and strengthen our workforce development system.   The Partnership is supporting ways to address this through providing support for the Regional Workforce Development Coalition and meeting the workforce needs of local employers, including manufacturers.
