PNREC Objectives

The Pacific Northwest Regional Economic Conference is a non-profit organization established to promote research and education on the economy of the Northwest states and western Canada. The objectives of the Conference are:
  • To present a program of professional papers, panels and symposia that relate to regional economics.
  • To enable distinguished regional scientists and policy analysts from elsewhere to play a featured role at the Conference.
  • To provide a forum for those from academia, business, and government to meet and interact professionally.
  • To introduce and share current regional economic research with students, business and community leaders.
