Press Release

The Greater Gallup Economic Development Corporation gathered with representatives of businesses, the arts, volunteer groups, nonprofit organizations, tourism, energy, as well as city, county, and tribal officials at El Morro Theatre for an Economic Roundtable to discuss the work being done to boost economic and community growth through strategic focus on three key areas of the local economy: downtown, tourism, and energy.

During the roundtable, the group discussed how investments in downtown, tourism and business retention and expansion efforts present significant opportunities to grow the economy of Gallup-McKinley County while helping move the county toward a diversified and innovative economy.

“The Economic Roundtable is really growing into the role that GGEDC envisioned when it launched,” GGEDC Executive Director Patty Lundstrom said. “The Roundtable brought some of the most important stakeholders together for a very substantive conversation with top experts, and I think everyone took something away from the table. I look forward to working with our local economic development partners as we strengthen the event even further, and I see great success ahead.”
