Gov. Kathy Hochul discussed with President Joe Biden today at the White House the many ways in which the federal and state governments can better work together to deliver career opportunities and to better protect New Yorkers.
About her meeting with the president, Vice President Kamala Harris, and cabinet officials at the National Governors’ Association's 2022 Winter Meeting that took place today at the White House, Gov. Hochul said, “she appreciated the opportunity.”
When speaking with President Biden, Gov. Hochul said she also “addressed supply chain issues, and ways to create jobs in New York" in up-and-coming industries, such as those that create the materials for technological products.
In New York, Gov. Hochul wants to train residents for jobs in other growing industries, such as in the clean energy sector.
Gov. Hochul said that she will continue to work with other governors with whom she met “to improve and diversify our nation's workforce development pipelines.”
“Additionally, my fellow governors shared concerns about rising inflation, and I am focused on ensuring that New Yorkers can thrive in this economy,” said the governor.
Mayor Eric Adams also will be speaking one-on-one on Thursday, when President Biden travels to New York City to discuss strategies to reduce crime in New York City and nationwide.
