Elevating Economic Development across the State of Maryland
Economic Development Week 2015
- This event has passed.
Economic Development Week will emphasize to the general public the importance of economic development for the State of Maryland. The week is designed to increase an understanding of economic development’s contribution to the State’s business climate, job retention and growth, the tax base and the overall quality of life in Maryland.
Economic development will take center stage in counties, cities and towns throughout Maryland when proclamations are made heralding the significant projects that have made Maryland a great place to live, work and play. Recognizing the dedicated work of economic developers is a primary focus of the effort.
