Our Vision for the New York City Region

The New York City Regional Economic Development Council seeks to ensure the continued growth in jobs and economic activity across the five boroughs, with a focus on preparing all residents for employment and on attracting jobs that pay a living wage.

The New York City Regional Economic Development Council has developed a strategic plan for inclusive economic growth and established project priorities to help New York state make investments and policy decisions that effectively address these challenges. It aims to ensure that New York City continues to grow and prosper and that the benefits of prosperity are widely shared across its neighborhoods and diverse populations, especially where need is greatest.
