Our current concern for action

Support local economic development history effort

Cleveland has a long and rich history of economic development.

In the Summer 2023, we are starting new video series about the history and economic development of Greater Cleveland on NEOtrans’s YouTube Channel. This series would be a valuable resource for anyone who is interested to learn more about Cleveland’s economic history and would help to promote Cleveland as a city open for transformation, business and investments. If you are interested in supporting this project, please contribute your donation, became a member or contact us by email below regarding the sponsorship opportunity.

Here are some topics that we would cover in this video highlights:

  1. Historic perspective and overcomes of transformative continuous construction projects
  2. Historical tours in the Greater ClevelandUSCRI Cleveland, US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants
  3. Analytics of the new developments and efforts to attract new businesses and investment. Challenges facing Cleveland’s economic development
