Attention to our natural resources isn’t just about environmental protection – we must recognize and take advantage of how they contribute to our economy and the quality of life. Delaware’s beaches, waterways, campgrounds, trails, award-winning state parks and wildlife areas form the backbone of Delaware’s conservation economy. That’s especially evident this time of the year as residents and visitors enjoy Delaware’s great outdoors by kayaking, camping, fishing, bicycling, and playing in the surf and sand.

Delaware entrepreneurs have always been at the forefront of innovation and quality. They create products and services that people need and improve the quality of life for consumers across the country and beyond. Today, the ability to tap into the global marketplace is a key driver of business and employment growth. Exports now support more than 10 million American jobs, and to thrive, Delaware employers must have access to these expanding markets.
