Education and Mobility: Key Topics for Michigan's Economic Outlook

On Thursday, January 11, 2018, CEO for Michigan Economic Development Corporation Jeff Mason and Interim Associate Director and Senior Economist for University of Michigan Energy Institute Ellen Hughes-Cromwick, Ph.D., discussed Michigan's 2018 economic outlook at the DEC.

Dr. Hughes-Cromwick commented on the economic outlook survey results that were unveiled at the meeting. “Education was the top cited by executives," Dr. Hughes-Cromwick said. "The second top topic was about diversity, youth, innovation, again intertwining with the education theme. We have an incredible opportunity if we take it with an incredible sense of urgency.”

In terms of where Michigan stands as a leader in autonomous vehicles, Mason said, “Legislature passed some of the most progressive legislation on testing autonomous vehicles on the highways in Michigan. I think we can respond this is where we are headed.”
