Regional Report: The Plains States Leverage Their Synergies
18 Mar 2020
In the upper Plains States of Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota, shared economic goals are leading to increased opportunity for collaboration within the region. James Leiman, director of the Economic Development and Finance division for North Dakota, says the states of the upper Plains share myriad commonalities.
“There are some concurrent economic sectors that benefit us all, whether it’s agriculture, energy or technology, but what’s really critical is leveraging those synergies to make us all stronger,” Leiman says.
