The project will further enhance Bombardier’s capacity for new contracts.
“Gov. Cuomo’s Regional Council initiative is taking New York from a state known as a frustrater of business growth to a facilitator of new business and private sector job development,” said Empire State Development President Kenneth Adams. “Through its first year, we have seen job-creating projects in the North Country and across the state start to take shape and pay dividends in new jobs and economic activity to boost our local economies.”
The North Country was awarded $103.2 million in state support through the Regional Economic Development Council during the first round for 70 projects.
The Council’s progress report and full list of endorsed priority projects for 2012 can be found at northcountryopenforbusiness.com or regionalcouncils.ny.gov/content/north-country.
