Economic Development

Grow Utah’s Economy

Despite the economic challenges we’ve faced globally and nationally, our state has remained strong. This is not by accident. The state, over many years, has invested in key economic policies that have helped make our state competitive. As the nation’s economy improves, it will be even more important to prioritize economic development so that we can continue with our momentum as states much larger than ours become stronger.
