HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - About 150 representatives of municipalities, organized labor and business are scheduled to meet this week to discuss how to improve Connecticut’s economic future.

An unprecedented two-day economic summit is planned for Thursday and Friday in Westbrook.

The event is sponsored by the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities, the Connecticut Business and Industry Association and the Connecticut AFL-CIO. It marks the first time the groups have partnered on a project.

Summit organizers plan to focus on five areas. They include state revenue and governance, education and workforce development, transportation and infrastructure, regional solutions and quality of life matters.

Joe Brennan, president of CBIA, said the goal is to “build a workable consensus from the full group on ways to improve Connecticut’s economic and community vitality.”
