Rochester's Post Bulletin Highlights ADC in MN2020 Story

ADC was proud to once again be a featured partner for Minnesota 2020, as they released the latest version of their Made in Minnesota Report. Entitled Building Cross-cultural Commerce, this report was authored by Lee Engerstrom and highlights the positive economic impact of the new and growing community of immigrants to Minnesota. By focusing on the fact that minority communities account for more than half of Minnesota’s population growth over the last decade, this report highlights the real potential to fill a number of economic gaps, from small business growth to housing purchases.

As reported here by Rochester’s Post Bulletin, the African Development Center and some of its clients were featured within this report, as well as two of the recent press conferences to get the word out about it’s release. ADC is excited to help publicize this very important work, and invites you to visit the Minnesota 2020 website to learn more about this report.

Here is a video from Minnesota 2020, explaining the report in greater detail:
