Governor’s Weekly Message: Sustaining Delaware’s Strong Economy through Employment Growth

Former Governor Jack Markell (2009-2017) | Kent County | New Castle County | News | Sussex County | Date Posted: Friday, October 7, 2016



Wilmington, DE – In a guest weekly message, Delaware Economic Development Officer (DEDO) Director Bernice Whaley reviews the state’s efforts to sustain Delaware’s strong economic growth through efforts to attract and retain employers who recognize the value in Delaware’s welcoming business climate, highly-skilled workforce, and high quality of life.

“Delaware’s economy today is strong, with the lowest unemployment rate in a decade and job growth that leads the region,” Director Whaley said. “But that doesn’t happen by accident. Businesses today can choose to locate just about anywhere, and the Markell Administration works tirelessly to attract and retain employers — from the largest corporations that hire thousands of Delawareans, to our small businesses who collectively employ more people than any other sector, to entrepreneurs and start-ups with the next great idea. Through these and other initiatives we will continue to seek innovative ways to attract new businesses on the cutting edge of technology, grow and educate our workforce, and sustain our strong economic growth. And that will keep Delaware moving forward.”

Every week, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form. The message is available on:
