Press Release June 14th, 2013
More than 125 business leaders, military, non-profits, and government representatives gathered at The Enterprise Center at Burlington County College on June 13th 2013 for a
Plan Smart NJ event. Parts Life, Inc. CEO and President Sam Thevanayagam was asked to speak on the panel at this event. The topic of discussion allowed participants to dig deep into explanation of the economic impact of the state’s defense industry, and discuss some of the steps we can take to better ourselves moving forward. The conference addressed whether or not the state is taking its defense industry assets and employers for granted. Prior to the event, Plan Smart NJ released the following to be addressed during the conference:
“What as a State should we be considering to support the defense industry? Is there enough housing in the right location to house defense industry workers? Can our transportation network move goods and people to the places they need efficiently and economically? Do we have reliable utility networks? Can small businesses thrive in the communities serving the Base? Are the regional plans that we have in place being effectively implemented? PlanSmart NJ’s Defense Industry: Are We Taking It for Granted? Conference will bring together experts for a half-day event to discuss what policies are working and what policies we need to put in place to bolster New Jersey’s defense industry.”
