This year’s highlights for the Buffalo Niagara Partnership include:

  • Preparing and developing our future workforce
  • Forming a Leadership Coalition to support 43North
  • Maximizing the opportunity for the regional economy and SolarCity

  • Rebounding downtown with the Buffalo Building Reuse Project
  • Long-term extension of the Brownfield Cleanup Program
  • Removing barriers to cross border commerce with the permanent cargo pre-inspection at the Peace Bridge

“Much of this year’s work could not have been done without many key strategic partners, member companies, and individual members,” said Dottie Gallagher-Cohen. “The work of the Partnership is done for the economic benefit of our entire community, and I am more than pleased with all we’ve accomplished this year. With that said, our work is never done and we’re already preparing to make 2015-16 an even more successful year for the Buffalo Niagara region.”

The Buffalo Niagara Partnership is the region’s private sector economic development organization and regional chamber of commerce, representing nearly a quarter of a million employees in the Buffalo Niagara region. The Partnership’s work has three main focuses: advocacy, business development and convening. By mobilizing members and strategic partners around common goals, the Partnership grows private investment and jobs in Buffalo Niagara.
