Florida Target Industry Competitiveness Study (pdf)

In September 2012, Enterprise Florida (EFI) released the Statewide Economic Development Competitiveness Study. EFI requested this study and it was a proactive step toward getting a clear and objective look at where Florida is in its economic development efforts. The study reviewed Florida’s current policies, practices, and resources over several years; talked to corporate decision makers and site consultants; and conducted benchmarking analyses with regional and local economic developers. The study offers suggestions on how to better advance local, regional and statewide economic development efforts while also making recommendations to help align our policies with our goals.
