Regional Economic Development Strategy Launch 2019-2023
Six years after I launched our Regional Economic Development Strategy (REDS) I was pleased to reinforce its value and thank our partners in business and industry for their enthusiastic commitment.
The progress we are making is very impressive but the challenge is ongoing and I encourage our business and industry community to continue working together as we address the challenges of the next 5 years.
Our targets remain
Grow our economy
Generate more high value employment
Increase regional exports, and
Continue to improve household incomes
In the future we will also focus on
1. Digital connectivity
2. Transportation Connectivity
3. Health and Knowledge Hubs
4. Event, Convention and Hotel Facilities, and
5. Smart, connected centres.
