The Arizona Association for Economic Development announced the results of its State of Arizona Economic Development survey at its recent spring conference. AAED surveyed its membership of more than 500 economic development practitioners and those that provide goods and services from the private sector.
Key takeaways from the survey include:
• Strong economic outlook for the next year
• Without available buildings, skilled labor/talent and adequate infrastructure, communities will struggle
• Economic developers must increasingly address workforce issues
• Practitioners and providers view infrastructure differently
