Offering tantalizing growth prospects, economic-development officials in Philadelphia USA last week released a three-year export plan.
Prepared by the Economy League of Greater Philadelphia and the World Trade Center of Greater Philadelphia, it was the cornerstone of Wednesday’s World Class Business Growth Forum at WHYY. The plan identifies a three-prong approach to achieving a more dynamic export economy:
Build export awareness and capacity among the region’s small and mid-sized businesses.
Catalyze export growth in the region’s health and professional-services clusters.
Strengthen and enhance coordination of the region’s export-assistance providers.
