Global Economic Forum For Pittsburgh

I rarely encounter any international diaspora initiatives that wouldn't translate to a small political geography such as Greater Pittsburgh. This is no exception:

Martin said that the event would harness the talents ‘‘of people who are conscious of worldwide trends in business and technology’’ and could contribute to an Irish economic recovery. ‘‘The second key element is to find ways to network this global diaspora more effectively in the future in a way that will contribute to Ireland and also benefit the network,” he said.

Time for a Burgh Diaspora conference in Pittsburgh, thus aligning the interests of homeland and expatriates.
