During an event in New Orleans, Amy Liu explained how the city could emerge as a model for the 21st century. She noted that the metropolitan area is poised to restore prosperity, improve systems to ensure resiliency, and embrace the next economy.

In this presentation, Liu urges the needs for good governance, strong infrastructure, and a diverse economy. She also highlights the gains the region has made as it continues to feel the effects of Hurricane Katrina, the Great Recession, and the Gulf oil spill.
