Washington, D.C. – The Bipartisan Policy Center and Detroit area business leaders will hold a forum next Thursday, April 7, to discuss how the public and private sector can work together to prioritize public value in future infrastructure investments.
As seen most recently with the water crisis in Flint, the nation’s infrastructure needs are greater than any one entity can handle and will need multiple actors to address the needs of communities in Michigan and across the country. The panel will discuss how the private sector can help stem the shortfall in federal infrastructure funding, and how it can work together with cities, counties, and states to prioritize public value in future investments.
The event is open to the public and press. This event will also be available via live webcast.
Members of the press wishing to attend in person or watch the webcast may RSVP using the link below or by emailing Jordan LaPier at firstname.lastname@example.org or Maureen Knightly at Maureen@knightlystrategies.com.
