Florida is a $1 TRILLION ECONOMY and Would Rank 16 in the World. How Do We Grow Florida Into a TOP 10 GLOBAL ECONOMY by 2030?
The Florida Chamber of Commerce has a long-standing history of supporting free trade, expanding international trade and investment opportunities for Florida businesses and communities, fair and equitable market access for Florida-origin exports abroad, and elimination of barriers that are harmful to Florida’s competitiveness as a global hub for trade.
The Florida Chamber is committed to connecting Florida’s business community to global opportunities and leveraging resources and investments to maintain and expand Florida’s position as an international trade leader. To meet the Florida 2030 Blueprint goal of doubling Florida-origin exports, Florida’s role in international trade must continue to strengthen. Through the Global Florida initiative, it is the Florida Chamber’s mission to educate and promote business opportunities, and collaborate and advance policy initiatives in each of the four major geographic regions:
- Asia Pacific
- Middle East/Africa
In Florida, global trade means high-wage jobs and economic prosperity. Economic development and trade missions with partners like Enterprise Florida, Inc., for example, are one way to build Florida’s global economy.
To become the number one state in the nation for innovation and economic development, we must continue to attract and retain high-skilled talent, target growing industries and continue to work toward the recommendations outlined in the Florida Chamber Foundation’s Florida Trade & Logistics 2030 Study.

Florida Trade & Logistics 2030
Following the strategic direction of the Florida 2030 Blueprint’s Six Pillars Framework™, the Florida Trade & Logistics 2030 Study (TL2030) is a follow-up research effort to the Florida Chamber Foundation’s previous research focusing on securing Florida’s infrastructure for smart growth and development. The third study in its series – following Florida Trade and Logistics (2010) and Made for Trade: Trade and Logistics 2.0 (2013) – TL2030 highlights the importance of trade, logistics, export-oriented manufacturing, and rural economic development in making Florida a top 10 global economy by 2030. The Florida Chamber Foundation encourages Florida businesses, economic development groups, local chambers, and lawmakers to leverage this study to inform policy and economic strategies over the next decade to ensure Florida remains globally competitive and continues to move the needle on its economic growth.
Here are just a few reasons to focus on trade, logistics, and manufacturing in Florida:
