The future of Las Vegas' economy was the topic of discussion Friday as top city and business leaders came together.

Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority president Rossi Ralenkotter says McCarran International Airport is key to hopefully attracting more international business.

The city hopes to reach 45 million visitors over the next five years.

One of the big companies highlighting growth in the Las Vegas area is Faraday Future as they work to build an electric car plant in North Las Vegas.
