Jose Lozano is CEO of Choose New Jersey, the nonprofit economic development organization with a mission to stimulate job creation and attract capital investment to New Jersey.
He talked about how Choose is succeeding despite the pandemic.
“As Choose New Jersey celebrates its 10-year anniversary, we are determined in our commitment to help New Jersey rebuild and recover from this unprecedented health and economic crisis. We are already seeing positive signs of relocation and expansion activity, and global interest in New Jersey has picked up during the pandemic as companies learn more about everything New Jersey has to offer. … Choose New Jersey was founded during a recession 10 years ago, and, today, we are in the midst of another economic crisis. Over the last 10 years, we have seen incredible growth, and I have no doubt that New Jersey will rebuild from this pandemic stronger than ever. We believe that Gov. (Phil) Murphy’s leadership in driving ‘economic health through public health’ distinguishes New Jersey from rest of the nation, and companies domestic and abroad are recognizing it.”
