Economic Development Strategy
We intend to be a city where the world’s most innovative companies thrive and where our diverse, dynamic population prospers.
Mayor Kasim Reed
This Economic Development strategy contemplates setting the stage for concrete, implementation-oriented plans. Its principal aim is to focus public and private entities throughout the city on what needs to be done in order to achieve sustainable economic growth and maintain Atlanta’s global competitiveness. Success in constructing the three pillars of the strategy and implementing the recommendations that compose each pillar will require building a broad collaboration to enhance Atlanta’s economic future. Deeper analysis and focused action plans will be required. Simply put, this strategy outlines where the city wants to go and describes why those aspirations are plausible. Subsequent plans will develop specific and measurable steps needed to get there.
