National Journal Hosts "Back in Business Forum"

Washington (June 18, 2013) -- On Wednesday, June 19, a select group of innovators will be featured at a daylong National Journal event, "Back in Business Forum: A Celebration of American Problem-Solving." The bottom line? Washington does not have a monopoly on ideas for economic and cultural growth. As America emerges from the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression, signs of innovation continue to sprout from the grassroots around the nation, nurtured by emerging private- and public-sector leaders who are producing new solutions to old challenges.

This full-day program of keynote interviews and discussions will foster constructive dialogue between an array of business executives, government leaders and problem solvers—from both inside and outside the Beltway—who are at the forefront of fresh thinking about how to continue putting America back in business.

Topic areas to be discussed include:

  • Health Care
  • Energy
  • Infrastructure
  • Workforce
  • Global Exports
  • Education
