Governor Abbott Proclaims 2023 Economic Development Week In Texas
9 May 2023
Governor Greg Abbott today celebrated the significant role local, regional, and statewide economic development organizations play in creating jobs, advancing career development opportunities, and improving the quality of life in communities across Texas by proclaiming May 8-12, 2023 as Economic Development Week in Texas.
"This Economic Development Week, we celebrate the more than 700 economic development organizations across Texas and their efforts to bolster communities both large and small," said Governor Abbott. "Thanks to economic development partnerships across the state, Texas is an economic juggernaut and remains the premier destination for workers and businesses from all over the world. Since I've been Governor, Texas has repeatedly broken historic employment records—including breaking three jobs records just last month—adding more than 2 million jobs and leading all other states with the fastest growing economy in the country. Working together, we will ensure Texas remains the economic engine of the nation."
