Economic Development Week

I think every day should be economic development day, but I was pleased to formally recognize Economic Development Week this morning with a County Council Proclamation presented to the Montgomery Business Development Corporation, Rockville Economic Development Inc., the City of Gaithersburg Office of Economic Development and the Montgomery County Department of Economic Development.

Montgomery County joins the Maryland Economic Development Association and counties across the state in recognizing September 30-October 4, 2013, as Economic Development Week.

Today we honored four organizations for their outstanding efforts in marketing, business development, technical assistance, skilled workforce development, advocacy, outreach, capital projects and financing activities in support of growing the county’s knowledge-based economy and expanding the county’s tax base.

Did you know that Montgomery County is home to 30 of the 100 largest publicly traded companies as recently ranked by the Washington Business Journal? Find out which ones they are.
