Intersection: Orlando’s Challenges With a Growing Economy
Orlando is growing fast. Tourism is booming, the airport’s adding new international flights and more people are moving to Central Florida. And as the population grows- so does job creation.
Growth is good for the economy- but there are challenges too.
City and county governments are working to diversify the economy and stimulate the high tech sector and boost high paying jobs- but are they doing enough?
And what about the infrastructure in Central Florida? Is the transportation network able to handle the demands of a growing, mobile workforce?
We’ll talk to the chair of the Central Florida Expressway Authority, Welton Cadwell.
Then, a panel of experts – UCF Economist Sean Snaith, Michael Zaharious from the Florida High Tech Corridor, and Dale Ketcham from Space Florida join Intersection to talk about entrepreneurship, aerospace and the economy.
