Economic Advisory Board

The Kusel District promotes the regional economy within available funds through measures devised to strengthen economic power, provide and maintain jobs and training opportunities, and improve the overall economic climate.

This objective is met specifically through providing contacts to businesses, advisory services to individual enterprises, and support for dealing with authorities as well as through improving infrastructures, arranging contacts to nationwide institutions of relevance, local advertising, coordinating communal economic development policies, and, if necessary, granting financial assistance within available budgetary resources.

As other institutions' activities affect the district's economic events as well, the Kusel District Economic Advisory Board shall take advantage of such on-hand experiences.

Pooling its individual members' personal and professional contacts as well as their experiences, the Economic Advisory Board aims to provide guidance to the district council on all economic development matters.
