s Today's schedule calls for two presentations set up by the Department of Economics at L'Aquila and Professor Margherita Mori. First I will be part of a program on Business Incubators with Professor Lelio Iapadre, Associate Professor in International Economics entitled "Local Development Issues - Baton Rouge and L'Aquila. The purpose is detailing how the LBTC works and how the university and LBTC plays a major role in disaster business recovery. A presentation will also be made by economic developers from the Abruzzo Region on Italian business incubators although their is currently none in L'Aquila and most Italian incubators are not University affiliated. This afternoon, I will be meeting with the Guardia di Finanza, a policia arm of the Italian Ministry of Finance. I will get a tour and give a brief presentation on the LBTC and our success stories.
