CEG has made headlines this past week for its ongoing courtship of California and Texas-based computer chip-makers, Advance Micro Devices (AMD). AMD has plans to build a $3.2 billion plant in the Luther Forest Technology Park in Malta that could bring more than 1,000 jobs to the area.
"CEG has been in regular contact with AMD, providing them with information and support in connection with the various steps they are taking," said Tucker.
The CEG's program also included a talk by Chip Heath, author of The New York Times bestselling book "Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die." Heath's talk was a part of CEG's Future Forward series and was sponsored by GE. Past speakers in the series include Malcolm Gladwell, the bestselling author of "Blink" and "The Tipping Point" and Dr. Richard Florida, author of "The Rise of the Creative Class."
The CEG is a regional economic and business development organization that develops and promotes efforts to attract high-tech talent and companies and to provide services to businesses in New York's Capital District and Tech Valley. ""
