Northeastern Wisconsin's Growth Agenda
of Wisconsin-Green Bay Chancellor Bruce Shepard presented "Northeastern
Wisconsin's Growth Agenda"
to the UW System Board of Regents Business, Finance, and Audit Committee on Thursday, April 6.
The board held its April 2006 meetings on the UW-Green Bay campus.
|Contrary to popular mythology, paper manufacturing
remains strong – the large traditional manufacturers are making key
capital investments to stay competitive on a worldwide stage. However, they
remain strong because they must relentlessly substitute capital and brain-power
driven innovation for labor. The major action is also now found in “high-tech
paper” – paper converting, paper-based advanced consumer products,
UWGB is, already, a key player in these initiatives.
Other changes include a growing health care industry, rapidly expanding services sector, growing impact of minority-owned businesses, and, less positively, loss of local ownership of national and international corporations.
