The Indiana Economic Development Corporation and the Northwest Indiana Forum are scheduled to announce on Monday the latest initiative to attract companies from Illinois. The latest endeavor to lure businesses from the neighboring state will include a three-month marketing campaign. Indiana picked up its efforts to lure companies from Illinois after its lawmakers passed a series of tax hikes.
Indiana Secretary of Commerce and Indiana Economic Development Corporation Chief Executive Officer Mitch Roob will be joined by Northwest Indiana Forum President and CEO Mark Maassel at Monday's announcement.
The event is scheduled for 2 p.m. Central Standard Time at the Hammond Marina.
