- The Role of Southern NM in the Economy
In collaboration with the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, the New Mexico State University College of Business is sponsoring a conference titled “The Role of Southern New Mexico in the Economy” from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 18, in the Corbett Center auditorium on the NMSU campus. This conference follows similar meetings sponsored by the Dallas bank in Hobbs and Carlsbad during the summer.
New Mexico has a long tradition of rapid growth compared with the rest of the United States. The Great Recession touched virtually every region, and New Mexico was not an exception. While the U.S. economy has been in recovery mode since the summer of 2009, New Mexico has struggled to keep up with the national pace. Data indicate there is a significant difference in economic performance between northern and southern New Mexico, with the southern part of the state leading the recovery. Strong economic growth in southern New Mexico has been driven mostly by trade, commodities and agriculture.
Speakers will discuss recent economic developments nationally, internationally and locally.
