Powered by a combination of public, private and philanthropic support from several collaborative regional groups, Central Florida boasts an estimated $300 billion economic impact and accounts for the 10th largest gross regional product (GRP) in the nation.
Residents may not know that Florida, which ranks in the nation’s five largest states, is expected to experience a continued growth surge. The Florida Chamber of Commerce wants businesses to be educated and prepared for development, asking constituents to reach out to their respective candidates and elected officials to keep communications open and their communities competitive.
Central Florida comprises a population of over 7.1 million spanning 15 different counties. Dubbed a “Super Region,” it thrives on the cooperation of civic organizations, planning councils, economic development groups and various chambers that recognize the power of combining resources to benefit the region’s business and residents.
Central Florida Partnership and Tampa Bay Partnership are just two of the groups spearheading a unified effort to market the mid-state region’s assets and assure beneficial public policies.
Citizens who wish to participate in helping to shape Florida’s path of future economic opportunities can host or attend one of many Florida Chamber Foundation-sponsored “Florida 2030” town hall meetings, slated for every single one of the state’s 67 counties.
