Immigrants Boost NWA Economy

Dec 7, 2016

In 2014, the foreign-born population contributed an estimated $3.1 billion to the Northwest Arkansas economy. That’s according to a new report called Global Talent: The Economic Engine of Northwest Arkansas. It was recently made public by EngageNWA and the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation, as well as New American Economy, an organization that brings together a bipartisan group of U.S. mayors and business leaders to raise awareness of the economic benefits of sensible immigration reform.
