Through the DRC’s work in economic development and supporting pro-growth public policy, Dallas has become one of the top markets in the country for business opportunities, corporate relocations, and job growth. However, with success comes new challenges. Our new strategic plan builds on the progress in recent years to grow and expand our business community, while committing to address long-term challenges — most significantly developing and attracting the talent needed to meet the future needs of local companies — and those companies considering a move to the region.
The DRC will continue to focus on leading economic development and growth, driving improvements in public education, and influencing public policy to meet the business community’s workforce needs and raise the region’s profile — across the United States and around the world.
Together, we will lead the Dallas Region to become the most economically prosperous region — and the most desirable place to live, work, and do business — in the United States.
