The California Economic Development Partnership an agency of the state government of California has has identified nine economic regions within California. Through their studies, the California Economic Strategy Panel has shown that each region is very distinct in demographics, workforces and key industries. The Economic Development Partnership, along with the Economic Strategy Panel, will host regional forums that will bring together business leaders, industry representatives, civic leaders, economic development organizations and professionals in education to form a network that will be able to systematically and continuously engage in dialog and policy considerations.
The California Economic Strategy Panel continuously examines changes in the state’s economic base and industry sectors to develop a statewide vision and strategic initiatives to guide public policy decisions for economic growth and competitiveness. The California Regional Economies Project is currently the lead mechanism for these efforts. For an overview of the Panel and its work, refer to the documents about the Panel and statutory mandates.
