Thank you for checking out WRED.

I trust this message finds you well. As the President of Western Region Economic Development (WRED), I am excited about the economic development efforts taking place in Williams, McKenzie, Divide, and Mountrail counties that are fostering growth and innovation across our region. We believe that collaboration and a shared vision is vital in creating a friendly business and legislative climate. When we combine these efforts with our region’s natural resources, geography, and people you get a winning combination. WRED’s contribution is to advocate for these efforts and weigh in on legislative issues that may impact business development in our region.  It is often said that a rising tide raises all boats. We believe that positive economic growth and development in one area of the region is beneficial to all. As a nonprofit organization our goal is simple – To support and stimulate economic development in Western North Dakota. 

As you explore our website, I hope that you will find the tools and resources that you need to enhance your business development efforts. We encourage you to stay engaged, share your ideas and concerns as we work together to shape the economic landscape of our communities.
