Special Economic Development

Economic development encompasses the process, policies, and activities by which a community improves the long-term economic and social well-being of its people. The objective of economic development is a sustainable increase in living standards, including per capita income, education, health, and environmental protection. 

Economic development strategies offer government, the private and not-for-profit sectors, and local communities the opportunity to work together to improve the local economy.
