President of Zara Realty Holding Corporation, George Subraj and his leadership team combine their industry experience to serve residents throughout western Queens, New York. Currently residing in Jamaica, New York, George Subraj appreciates the value of assisting families in their search for homes in a rapidly expanding area with a remarkable history.

Historically, Queens and the Jamaica Avenue area was a Native American trading route. In the Revolutionary War, the colony of Jamaica had Minutemen fighting to thwart England’s attempt to control the entire New York region.

With the funding of a public school system in 1813, Long Island’s Jamaica Village established boundaries that included the present Van Wyck Expressway on the west and Farmers Boulevard on the east. Queens joined New York City in 1898, with Jamaica serving as the county seat.

Home to entrepreneurs who hail from around the world, the borough of Queens represents one of the country’s most ethnically diverse neighborhoods. Over the past three decades, Queens has welcomed an annual average of 5,000 immigrants. Known for its tolerance of other cultures, Queens has boasted such famed and diverse contemporary residents as Donald Trump and 50 Cent.

Officials in many developing countries struggle with the question of improving economic opportunity for their governments and people. In most cases, nations that have achieved success in this area implemented new business initiatives, including manufacturing, agriculture, and technology services. In order to realize these goals, local and national governments worked in tandem with philanthropists and business leaders to provide job training for regional workforces.

An effective economic development plan that results in the creation of jobs often commences with an increased focus on education at all levels. Children in underserved and poor districts often lack ready access to quality education. Parents sometimes pull children from school at an early age to help with household needs or get a job. This family situation, with one generation after another garnering only minimal education, exacerbates the cycle of poverty and becomes the cultural norm throughout regions. Governments promote thriving business by allowing on-the-job training for adult workers while educating upcoming generations to take on larger roles, such as management and development.
