2017 Economic Development Task Force Report


Making Florida More Competitive

If you believe we must accelerate the diversification of our economy and make Florida more competitive–not only with neighboring states, but also globally, then we need you involved in taking these recommendations to the next level.  Florida needs to create two million new jobs by 2030.  Everything we know about Florida is changing — our politics, our demographics and our economics. And while elected officials don’t create jobs, they do create the conditions for businesses to create jobs. This report outlines steps the Florida Legislature can take now to ensure a stronger business climate.

This report follows Florida’s Six Pillar framework and addresses closing Florida’s talent gap; continuing to grow and diversify Florida’s economy; preparing Florida’s infrastructure for smart growth and development; keeping Florida’s business climate competitive; making government more efficient and championing Florida’s quality of life.

Will you help us make Florida more competitive?
