Florida 2030


The Florida 2030 Task Force is meeting May 20, 10:00 - 11:30 ET, featuring Dr. Jerry Parrish, Florida Chamber Foundation. This task force has taken on three of The Florida Chamber's 2030 goals:
  1. Top state for gross domestic product and top quartile most diversified state economy
  2. Rural county share of Florida gross domestic product doubles

During this meeting, the Florida 2030 Task Force will divide into three working groups to address key areas to facilitate FEDC's effort to achieve each of the three goals.
