Development of the State of New Jersey's economic growth strategy.
In 2007, the Heldrich Center assisted the New Jersey Governor’s Office of Economic Growth to develop version 2.0 of the state’s Economic Growth Strategy. In 2006, the Heldrich Center played a primary role in the development of the first version of the strategy. In 2007, the Heldrich Center assisted in the development of the state’s strategies for urban economic development, global trade and investment, and workforce development. To inform the development of the strategies, the Heldrich Center conducted interviews with key stakeholders, reviewed promising and innovative strategies being used by other states, and analyzed available data. Heldrich Center staff worked closely with staff of the Governor’s Office of Economic Growth throughout the process to develop a draft strategy.
