On behalf of our board, staff, and members at the Pharr EDC, I am pleased to share with you the many exciting things we have been working on during the 1st Quarter of 2019.
As we prepare to begin a new year, we would like to thank you, our business community, and regional partners for your support and commitment to our great City of Pharr and the Pharr EDC.
The Pharr Economic Development Corporation has been busy promoting our city’s economic opportunities, celebrating the opening of new businesses, and working with our local regional, state, and federal partners to advocate for projects and programs that directly impact our region and city.
We are halfway through 2018, and our economy in Pharr continues to thrive. Our focus this quarter has been working on economic development projects of regional significance, welcoming many new businesses to our area, and continuing to support efforts to promote workforce development and job readiness.
The first quarter of 2018 was a very active and exciting one for us at the Pharr EDC. In February, I celebrated my one year anniversary of my appointment as President and CEO of the Pharr EDC. Together, we have shared many accomplishments in serving the business community and contributing to our local economy.
We have been busy at the Pharr Economic Development Corporation since our last newsletter, welcoming many new businesses, celebrating groundbreakings, working with our international partners, and continuing to expand opportunities for our residents to enjoy a better quality of life—at home and around our great City of Pharr! Here at the Pharr EDC, we are on the trajectory of expansion, working closely with our community, regional partners, businesses, and future investors to continue to build this city! As always, we thank you for your support and business and we cannot wait to share the many new developments and projects we have been working on with you!
