At Supplierty News, we are committed to covering rural area news, which is why we are starting the conversation with southern Louisiana.

The South Louisiana Economic Council (SLEC) is looking for ways to market the region after the oil bust claimed about 12,000 jobs in the past two years.  In an effort to do so, they organization has created a three year plan to return jobs to the area as quickly as possible.  With so many jobs gone, alot of the population has up and left, leaving the southern state in a need of rebuilding.

SLEC’s three year plan looks to “include advocating for the expansion of infrastructure important to economic development and advocating for issues important to the region’s business community.”  If you are looking to relocate your business to the area, you can find out more information on incentives, hiring opportunities, and 3 year outlook at their link below:
