Sikeston, MO -- The Director of Missouri's Department of Economic Development  and members of his staff will conduct a "Regional Dialogue on Jobs and Economic Growth" this afternoon in Sikeston.  The event will be held from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the Best Western Coach House Inn.

D.E.D. Director Joe Driskill says the purpose of the meeting will be to discuss a recent organization of the department, including the use of regional development teams; a presentation of the Missouri Blueprint for Jobs and Economic Prosperity, which is a long term strategy for helping businesses, communities and workers remain competitive in "the knowledge-based global economy of the 21st century;" and a report on current economic conditions in the state.

The southeast Missouri team is the first to be formed, and over the next few weeks, the department will establish five other regional teams.
