Tampa Bay, Florida – Following a year of in-depth research to determine where Tampa Bay’s future jobs will come from, the Tampa Bay Partnership and Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council announced the completion of the research phase for the Regional Business Plan for Tampa Bay.
The goal of the Tampa Bay Regional Business Plan is to create community awareness and understanding of the region’s collective strengths and develop a shared regional action plan to grow high-potential industry clusters as well as put the educational and policy infrastructure in place to support it.
The research, which was supported by a broad coalition of regional partners, focused on ascertaining Tampa Bay’s future value-added industries and appropriate workforce skills necessary to sustain these industries. SRI International’s Center for Science, Technology and Economic Development conducted the research and Katherine Johnson, Senior Economist, will be presenting the final SRI research study, "A Regional Business Plan for Tampa Bay" during three presentations on Monday, May 23, 2011 and Tuesday, May 24, 2011 in Lutz, St. Petersburg, and Bradenton.
