Entry Description

Indianapolis, IN – Governor Mike Pence today chaired the third quarter Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) Board meeting at Union Station Technology Center in South Bend. 

“Indiana has made great strides in the third quarter, as evidenced by sustained economic development and job growth,” said Governor Pence. “I commend the Indiana Economic Development Corporation Board and IEDC staff for their efforts and urge continued innovation as we strive to make Indiana more hospitable to companies, attractive to talent, and welcome to investment in the years ahead.” 

During the meeting, the Governor recapped good news from recent months, including:

  • Indiana ranks fifth nationally in the rate of private sector job growth;
  • Indiana ranks number one nationally in the growth of the trade, transportation and utilities sectors and number four in manufacturing growth;
  • the recent trade mission to Japan has already led to an announcement of the creation of up to 224 new jobs by 2016 at Heartland Automotive, LLC, a subsidiary of Japan-based Shigeru Company, Ltd.; and
  • state and airline industry executives recently announced direct flights from Indianapolis to San Francisco, which is critical to the state’s growing high-tech sector and industries with a footprint in Asia. 

The Board also heard reports from the Entrepreneurship Committee, the Policy Committee and the Audit Committee, as well as the Executive Report, which was presented by Indiana Secretary of Commerce Victor Smith and IEDC President Eric Doden.
