Help grow the Valley’s Economy
In June 2013, LVEDC retained the Atlanta-based Garner Economics, a nationally-renowned economic development and site location firm, to develop a sustainable economic development strategy and identify ways to effectively grow the Lehigh Valley economy.
The end result is “A Blueprint for Success: An Economic Development Strategy for Sustainable Growth in the Lehigh Valley.”
This 57-page study, tempered with a careful 66-point analysis, has forged a blueprint for the region’s economic future, and serves as a road map that will help the LVEDC strengthen the region’s existing industries and assist the Lehigh Valley with getting to the next level. It will ensure the region fully leverages its many assets to create an environment where cutting-edge companies and world-class talent will want to locate, and will help LVEDC identify and market to emerging industries that are an optimal fit for the region.
