The study, commissioned by APEX and conducted by the Bureau of Business and Economic Research (BBER) at the University of Minnesota Duluth’s Labovitz School of Business and Economics, found the project supported, on average, 4,157 jobs per year in the region and had a total impact of over $5 billion. ‘Large-scale industrial projects are critical to continued growth and success throughout not just the APEX region but also the entire state of Minnesota,’ said Lisa Bodine, APEX board chair. ‘The project surpassed all economic impact projections and created family-sustaining jobs for many Minnesotans. APEX is proud to advocate for these types of projects in our region because we understand the economic, environmental and social benefits will be felt for decades to come.'” FULL STORY: https://fluence-media.co/3PrY94H
